the idea of “Chia Porridge”
I decided to have Chia Porridge for lunch. It is super easy to make. But you and the kids might prefer to have it for breakfast! I’m giving you the quantities for one serving, to make more just use a bit more of everything!
- 1 Tablespoon chia seeds
- water to cover the seeds
Allow the chia seeds to sit for 10-15 minutes and they will soak up the water and become gelatinous! So do that first while you are collecting all the other ingredients and chopping whatever you like. Or, make yourself a cup of tea!
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp cacao powder (optional)
- 1 tsp lucuma powder (optional)
- cacao nibs
- yogurt, kefir or nut milk of your choice
I also added cashews, almonds, frozen blueberries, 1 chopped frozen strawberry, 1/2 chopped banana, dried coconut, goji berries, hemp seed and chopped celery (you can never get enough celery and I love crunchy things – and I was having this for lunch, and they do put celery in a Waldorf salad!).
Here is a breakfast version I made for my husband: chia, goji, water, cinnamon, cacao, macs, honey, chopped apple, 2 chopped strawberries, blueberries, coconut, hemp, yogurt, kefir and a tad of homemade granola.
So, get creative and try it! Stock your kitchen with healthy nutritiously dense items and then dream up new ways of combining them! Let me know what you discovery in your experimentation!
