Another delicious Tasty Tuesday recipe from our guest chef and Team B4BC rider Elena Hight! This one is all about antioxidant-rich chia seeds, which have awesome positive health effects including preventing cancer, boosting energy, stabilizing blood sugar, aiding digestion, and lowering cholesterol. Read how to make this travel-friendly, super easy and healthy recipe below!
For a super healthy alternative to oatmeal or a quick easy breakfast for on the road, I love to use chia seeds. I am always looking for easy ways to eat healthy when I am traveling. The great thing about this is that you can make it anywhere. For example, if you are in a hotel room with no kitchen, you can just bring your chia seeds with you and you can ask for a cup of milk from the local coffee shop and make this in a cup, and add whatever toppings you might be able to muster up!
- 3 Tablespoons chia seeds
- 2/3 cup alternative milk – I like coconut, almond or soy
- Handful of blueberries or raspberries
- 1 tablespoon of walnuts or slivered almonds
- 1 teaspoon of shredded or flaked coconut (optional)
- 1 pinch of cinnamon
- 1 pinch of cardamom
- Drizzle of honey
In a bowl, mix the chia seeds with the milk. Let sit for at least 10 minutes so that the chia seeds soak up the liquid. If you are in a rush, you can heat the seeds with the milk in a pot which will expedite the absorption process.
Once the liquid is absorbed, top with berries, nuts, spices, coconut flakes, and honey. Enjoy!
