I will admit I was the first to think….meal planning, what a pain?! With that being said, I have been doing it for the first time for the last 3 weeks and I am actually quite enjoying it. When life gets super busy it is nice to know what is for dinner and that you will have leftovers for lunch. Healthy eating can be really expensive, and it helps you to not waste food, have a good supply of common ingredients and plan your meals around what the sales are that week.

 

One of my favorite easy breakfast foods is Chia Seed Pudding. It is a good source of

-Protein

-Omega 3 fats

-Fibre

-Calcium

-Manganese

-Magnesium

 

Best of all it keeps you full! It is best made the night before and makes for an easy on the go breakfast

Chia Seed Pudding Recipe

2 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 Tbsp Hemp Hearts

½ Cup Full Fat Coconut Milk (from the can)

½ Tsp Maple Syrup (can omit)

½ cup Berries of Choice

 

Place the seed in your container, add coconut milk and maple syrup and stir. Layer berries on top of the chia seed mixture and put in the fridge overnight. Enjoy the next morning.
