 Cha-Cha-Cha-Chia...
I've recently been craving cereal for breakfast, as it used to be what I lived off of.  However, I know that those delicious sugary bowls aren't exactly my waist line's friend.  This chia seed breakfast bowl is an excellent healthy alternative that's just as easy as pouring a bowl of cereal.

It only takes two minutes to prep your bowl & place it in the refrigerator overnight so it'll be ready to go in the morning!  This recipe makes a hearty two portions so you can divide it up into smaller containers for breakfast on the run.  The best part?  Each serving is chop full of fiber, calcium, omega, & protein!  It will keep you full & energized all morning long.  Move over, Cheerios!

Chia Seed Breakfast Bowl:
1/4 cup chia seeds
2 cups milk of your choice (I prefer coconut but you could use soy, almond, hemp, etc)
1 tsp vanilla

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl.  Use a whisk to prevent clumping or place ingredients in a high powered blender for a thicker consistency.  Store in an air-tight container in the fridge overnight.  Top with your choice of items (nuts, bananas, pineapple, cinnamon).  I opted for diced mango, kiwi, & goji berries.  If you're using unsweetened milk you may consider adding a couple of tablespoons of maple syrup for sweetener.

What is your favorite healthy breakfast for on the go?
