I am always on the hunt for recipes that pack a nutritional punch and show that you don't need powders and supplements to make a nutritious meal. This recipe is packed with vitamins and minerals; and is VERY filling. Using the toppings/mix ins I list below, it has a little over 400 calories, 25g fiber (drink your water folks!), about 40g net carbs, 16g protein, and 18g healthy fats!
4 Tbsp Nutiva chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Mix these together in a glad bowl or mason jar. Use a fork to mix them and make sure they are fully combined. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, heat in the microwave for 3 minutes. Add in your choice of flavorings, or try some of these flavors:
Banana Bread: 1 banana, 1/2 Tbsp natural peanut butter, 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Chocolate Peanut Butter: 1 Tbsp maple syrup, 1 Tbsp natural peanut butter, 1 packet stevia
Strawberry Shortcake: 4-5 sliced strawberries, 1 Tbsp slivered almonds, 1 Tbsp raw cashews, 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
