Grab my Chia Goodness. I'm out the door. I've got my breakfast ready...
Something about Ke$ha's song "Tik-Tok" that just gets me thinking about my morning routine. Which has been relatively insane this summer between summer debate camps, vacations, and trainings. However during this insanity, I have had the opportunity to discover new breakfast options. Including a cereal that could be made hot or cold -- Chia Goodness!
While roaming the aisles of a Whole Foods somewhere in the United States, I stumbled across this bag that caught my eye. With the only ingredients being Chia, Buckwheat, Hulled Hemp Seeds, and Celtic Sea Salt is seemed like it was full of healthy benefits. The bag said you could make it cold or hot and all I would need is a couple of tablespoons of liquid (water or milk of your choice). 4 tablespoons of liquid for 2 tablespoons of seeds.
How was it? I tried making it and waiting the 3-5 minutes that the bag suggested. It was really seedy. So I tried again and let it sit overnight. I grabbed it in the morning and took it to the gym to each after my workout and before I went to work. It was delicious! Earthy and nutty. Still a little crunchy but in a good way. I tried it with blueberries and with bananas, with soy milk and with water. It has become a super easy-to-prep breakfast.
chia and hemp seeds. But health benefits aside, the bottom line is that this cereal is easy to make and good to eat.
