breakfast Looking for a powerful and nutritious breakfast that tastes great?  Look no further because I just ate exactly that! Ever since chia seeds have made their grand introduction to several healthy recipes lately, I have been experimenting with them to find the best recipe for me. I find chia seeds to be a great component for breakfast and do believe you will enjoy my chia seeds with almond milk, kefir, and other delicious and nutritious toppings.

Experimentation is my favorite part about cooking and being in the kitchen.  You don’t have to be a trained chef to get in your kitchen and make amazing dishes with the ingredients on hand.  I do encourage you to play around in your kitchen more, if you do not already.  You may find a true passion for cooking and food.  Even though I am in culinary school, I have always been very interested in exploring different foods and seeing what food pairs well with what.  While I was in college, I loved to cook every week night for my roommate and my boyfriend.  It’s a lot more fun when you have mouths to feed and you hear “That was so good! Thank you!”

I am obsessed with this breakfast.  I have literally been eating it every morning for the past couple of months and I’m still loving it.  I think I enjoy it so much because it gives me the fuel and energy I need to power through the first part of my day.  I have a strong feeling you will love it too!

For this recipe you will need:

1 Tbsp chia seeds
1 cup vanilla kefir (or whichever flavor you like)

Optional toppings:

A handful of blueberries
French almond granola
Dried cranberries
Slivered almonds
Pumpkin seeds
Walnuts
Sprinkle of cacao nibs

Mix the chia seeds and kefir tougher and allow to sit for a couple of minutes. Once the chia seeds are combined with liquid, they will expand in size and become somewhat gelatinous. Top with your favorite toppings.  I hope you love it as much as I do. It’s actually quite filling so you will definitely feel satisfied and won’t be digging around the refrigerator or pantry for anything else.  Enjoy!
