I don't know about you, but I'm often on the go a lot and need to take my breakfast along with me - it doesn't help that I'm also one of those people who can't eat straight away after getting up in the morning! I also don't have a lot of spare room in my bag, and these little pots are just perfect for days when you need to head out the door without worrying about bringing along your entire breakfast cupboard. They may only take fifteen minutes to make, but they're fulfilling, incredibly nutritious and a delightfully seasonal mix of flavours that will satisfy every sweet tooth, whilst also having earthy undertones for the savoury lovers. (They're also extremely pretty to look at too, which is obviously so important when you're eating it in your staff room next to your other colleagues!! Expect plenty of remarks coming your way!)
Even though they may be tiny, it's so important to remember how beneficial chia seeds are, and just how great they are for your general health. Not only are they extremely high in omega-3, which can help to lower the risks of heart diseases and strokes, but they also contain iron, magnesium, soluble fibre and antioxidants that all help to protect your body cells from free radicals (compounds that can build up and contribute to ageing and cancer), reduce possibilities of obesity and build healthy bones and teeth. So, really, they're an absolute essential. If you're feeling adventurous, these seeds are incredibly versatile and are great sprinkled over salads, blended into smoothies or sprouted to add into salads, but are just as delicious mixed with blended fruits and liquids and turned into healthy breakfast pots or desserts.
The perfect breakfast for someone on the go, these pots are filled with the flavours of autumn and winter and are filling, wholesome and nutritious, and will satisfy your sweet tooth at the same time!
Thank you for visiting, I'm so glad you're here! I'd love for you to have a look around and find something you want to make, and please let me know what you think!
