A tasty new chia seed recipe is a golden treasure in the mind of almost any healthy eater. Athletes consider Chia a “high-octane” food that keeps all cylinders firing for extended periods of time. Why do Chia seeds seem like a miracle food you may ask? It all comes down to a near perfect blend of protein, carbohydrates, fats and fiber. Some claim that a single tablespoon of Chia can even sustain a person for 24 hours!
The little seeds that adorned the clay heads from times forgotten have now been put into a light in which they deserve – breakfast! Here’s what the tatted chef just whipped up as a chia seed recipe for breakfast this morning:
“I saved a serving or two of my “chia pet” or raw chia pudding from last night then added it to my morning oatmeal; I personally see this as a stroke of genius… but I digress.
Organic GF oats
a dash of stevia
a sprinkle of cinnamon
top with chia
add some extra blueberries and *VOILA*
Its a delicious and very nutritious way to start the day, or in this case, an after workout energy reboot! Add some chia to your day, you wont be sorry!
