I think it is fair to say that I am officially addicted to fashion, food and all things pretty. As well as being a fashion addict, I love spending time in the kitchen playing around with different recipes and making my food look like a piece of art. Being a PE teacher I am passionate about my health, wellbeing and general fitness so eating the correct types of food is really important to me. As well as using this blog to share with you my recent purchases and styles, I am also going to start sharing with you some of my favourite recipes.
My first recipe is going to be all about breakfast. Breakfast for me is without a shadow of a doubt my favourite meal of the day. I honestly do not understand how people can skip breakfast, I wouldn’t last 30 minutes on a Monday morning without it. Depending on the time I get up at in the morning I crave different types of food. If I am up super early I tend to want to eat something sweet and if I am up later in the morning I would happily eat more savoury types of food. One thing that is really important in maintaining a healthy lifestyle is being cautious about the amount of sugar we are consuming everyday. Many of us would be shocked to find out that the ‘healthy’ breakfasts that we pick from the supermarket shelves are actually full of hidden sugars, one of the sneaky contributors to weight gain.
This recipe I am going to share with you today is a super super simple one, perfect for those of you who would rather sacrifice time in the kitchen in the morning for an extra 10 minutes in bed. If this sounds like you, this recipe is going to be PERFECT for you and it is so simple to make
How To Make It
I think this is possibly one of the simplest breakfast recipes ever so there is absolutely no excuse not to give it a try. Firstly, all you need to do the evening before is put 4 tablespoons of Chia seeds into a bowl, add one cup of almond milk, one tablespoon of maple syrup/agave syrup and mix it together. Put a plate/lid over your bowl and pop it in into the fridge overnight. In the morning when you wake up, the Chia Seeds with have absorbed the Almond Milk and will have increased in size. Pop a few raspberries, pomegranates and sunflower seeds on top and bobs your uncle…you have the most delicious breakfast with the smallest amount of effort. I guarantee, if you love your sleep, this will be your saving grace in the morning.
What You Need
1 Cup of Almond Milk
4 Tablespoons of Chia Seeds
1 Tablespoon of Maple Syrup/Agave Syrup
Handful of Raspberries
Handful of Sunflower Seeds
