Vegan, Gluten-Free::Chia Seed Porridge for Breakfast

I've been getting tired of the same old green juice every morning,
so every now and then, I like to switch things up.
I've eaten chia seed pudding for dessert, but I had never
considered eating it for breakfast until just the other day 
when I was browsing on ohsheglows.com!

I just eat mine really simply; with some flax meal, coconut flakes,
and a banana, but I'm thinking about playing around with some more flavors
in the future ;)

As for now, here's the basic recipe for a regular chia seed pudding/porridge:

Recipe: Chia Seed Porridge
                                                                     By: Hannah Claudia        

2 tablespoons chia seeds
3/4 cup of almond milk (or any milk that you drink)
1 tablespoon of maple syrup

what I like to add to mine: unsweetened coconut flakes


1. Mix the ingredients (and coconut flakes) together.
2. Let the mixture sit in the refrigerator. After 2 hours, stir the 
pudding (some of the chia seeds will clump and sink to the bottom).
3. Refrigerate over night for best results ;)

I sliced up some bananas and mixed them in; if you really
want to get creative, you can layer the chia seed porridge
with some fruit and granola ;)

Also, if you eat raw oats (I'm personally not a fan of that though),
mix the oats when you make the pudding. They'll soften up overnight and be 
much easier to digest. Plus, they make the porridge much heartier. 

topped it off with some flax seed meal for extra fiber and omega-3

Start your morning off right with breakfast. 
If you want to eat healthier or even lose weight, never skip a meal.
Eat the right foods and you'll be on the right track.

xoxo, Hannah
