Today I had a parfait for breakfast!
Peaches, plain Greek yogurt, granola and chia seeds. Delicious!
Chia seeds: easy to add to your diet
I love chia seeds, especially at breakfast time. They are easy to add to almost anything because of their neutral taste: oats (regular, baked, overnight), yogurt, smoothies, cold cereal… they are even good sprinkled on top of a toast (with nut butter, nutella, jam… anything!).
Maybe you make flax eggs… well you can also make chia eggs: mix 1 tbsp chia seeds with 3 tbsp water and let sit 15 minutes.
Chia seeds are full of nutrients! They will also help keep you full all morning because of their high content of fiber and protein.
Chia seeds: nutrient powerhouse
