I know sometimes you read my blog and think, "wow Krista is a total expert in cooking and baking". She posts such fabulous homemade cooking and food posts (aka cleansing and protein bars that I just buy). With all the difficult recipes I whip up, it seems like that. I know.
But. Sigh, *SHOCKER* I'm really not any expert at all.
I just don't do cook.
I eat too much food when I am waiting for the food to cook, period the end.
I don't have a big kitchen and I don't enjoy it or have supplies.
Those are my thoughts.
This recipe I shared with some friends and they were really into it, and wanted to share with you!
Why I LOVE THIS:
It's so easy.
It's so delicious.
Its super affordable.
It's low in sugar, packed with super foods and tastes like chocolate amazingness.
Trader Joe's is awesome for bulk foods, but also ordering online means you don't leave the house. AYYY!!
So here we are!
Recipe for a super easy, filling, affordable, grab and go chocolate protein chia seed breakfast, that takes 2.5 seconds to make.
What you need:
Chia Seeds, about a 1/3rd cup
Hemp Seeds, about a half cup
Flax Seeds (I like ground better), about 1/4th cup
Vega Sport Chocolate and Greens Protein Powder, one scoop
Almond Milk, about a 1/2 cup, but really just do as much as you'd like (I love the 365 brand from Whole Foods)
A hipster mason jar because plastic is SO OUT
Where to get supplies:
What you need to do:
Throw everything in a jar, and mix it up so that it's a soupy consistency.
The chia seeds will absorb the liquid to become a mouse like texture overnight.
After stirring it up, throw it in the fridge.
Take with you to work, or just eat it in the morning!
I have been taking it with me to go in the morning and it's so freaking good.
You can add other stuff to it too. Whatever you'd like, goji berries, cinnamon, or fruit. Feel free to make it your own!
Do you guys have any super easy recipes that you use in the morning? Would love to hear your routine!
P.S. Almost there! It's THURSDAY!
