A healthy yummy vegan breakfast that I got off a blog that I follow (http://veganrecipereview.blogspot.com/).

  • 1/3 c. oats, old fashioned rolled, dry, organic
  • 1 tbs. chia seeds, organic
  • 1 med. banana, fresh, organic
  • 1/2 c. almond milk, unsweetened, organic
  • 1/2 tbs. honey, raw, unfiltered, organic

  1. In a medium bowl, combine oats, chia seeds, and mashed banana. Mix until dry ingredients are wet. Then, stir in the almond milk. Let sit in the refrigerator overnight.

2. In the morning, drizzle the honey or nectar. You can also add in other ingredients of your choosing, from chopped nuts, fresh blueberries, peanut butter, dried fruit. cinnamon, etc. Enjoy!

A little bit on Chia Seeds from Getchia.com: Promotes Cardiovascular Health: According to the American Heart Association, Omega-3 fatty acids can normalize blood pressure and bad cholesterol levels, while helping promote healthy heart and blood vessels.

Assists Joint Function & Mobility: With six times more calcium than milk, and with greater amounts of high-quality protein than the one found in soy, Chia also helps strengthen muscles and bones.

Improves Digestion & Natural Detoxification: Chia can absorb a whopping 12+ times its weight in water – flax seed only absorbs 6-8 times its weight. Chia´s insoluble fiber reduces digestive transit time and removes toxins as it passes through the digestive tract.

Supports Healthy Weight Loss: Chia´s high fiber content and its ability to reduce blood sugar levels after meals inhibits the appetite, thus making it the perfect food for healthy, effective weight loss. Thanks to its neutral flavor and color, Chia integrates seamlessly into any healthy recipe.
