Chia Breakfast Bowl – Cook & Hook
I know many of you are always on the lookout for quick, healthy breakfast ideas, and I have a solid for you. This chia breakfast bowl has been in high rotation here for the past couple of weeks. It’s summery and bright, and if you can get on board with chia seeds in general, it’s a nice way to start the day.
Let’s Talk Chia
Chia can be a funny ingredient to experiment with, and quite honestly, I’m not always a fan of chia preparations. That said, when I’ve found my groove with them, they’re great – high in fiber, omega-3s, an ancient energy seed used by the Aztecs, Mayans, and Incans. I make a version of this bowl before a yoga class, or before a morning paddling / swimming in Lake Tahoe, and it really keeps me going, feeling strong.
How To Make a Chia Breakfast Bowl
It goes like this – soak the chia seeds in your favorite nut milk, top with smashed berries, fresh passionfruit juice, pepitas, and big flakes of toasted coconut. A bit of bee pollen adds a boost and some pretty.
And if you end up enjoying this chia breakfast bowl, give this breakfast chia pudding a go as well. Made with mango and loaded with toppings it’s A+.
