Chia Bowl
11.21.2012

No matter how hard we try to have leisurely mornings, breakfast usually ends up being a rushed endeavor at our house. That’s why it’s extra important that we have some healthy go to’s, so we don’t end up defaulting to something not so healthy or worse – skipping it altogether. We’re typically smoothie people but these days breakfast has taken on a whole new meaning. We are OBSESSED with our latest recipe, a perfect winter concoction that has enough antioxidants to make you live forever, no matter how much stuffing you ate the night before. We call it the Chia Bowl.

Ingredients:
1 cup honey Greek yogurt or your favorite plain-ish yogurt (I use the whole fat kind because it makes breakfast stay with me a lot longer before I get hungry again. Worth it!)
Sprinkle of dried goji berries
2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds
2 teaspoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons of your favorite granola – we are using Trader Joe’s pumpkin flax granola because it’s festive

Yogurt first, then chias, poms, goji’s, and granola. Enjoy!

    Yum, this reminds me of my winter breakfast. I start with 1/4 c bulk oats, add a healthy sprinkle of cinnamon, Tablespoon of chia seeds, teaspoon of cocoa powder (all yum, no sugar!), sprinkle of flax, handful of roasted walnuts (do up a batch and keep sealed in fridge) and then 1/4 c of pomegranate.Add hot water and it’s good to go. It is so delicious and so quick to make. Pomegranates are by far my favourite winter fruit.

  4. I’ve been looking for the perfect breakfast recipe and the fact that it offers eternal life is a serious plus! Can’t wait to try chia bowl yumminess!

  5. Ok, this looks *delicious*! I’m a smoothie or homemade granola girl myself (or in winter, a fancy spin on a bowl of porridge with honey and cinnamon and berries), but I’m buying a big bag of chia seeds and trying this asap!
