Smoothies are a great way to eat your greens first thing in the morning or for part of a post-workout snack. The blueberries and almond milk blend together with the kale and creates a vibrant smoothie full of life, and fuel, to get you through your day!
This is a great meal on the go option for those needing a good power boost without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. This smoothie is inspired by the infamous Chunky Monkey flavor from Ben & Jerry's, but packs a nutrient punch with chia seeds and the superfood powers of cacao.
With chocolate in the title, we don't think you will need much pushing to try this amazing breakfast. But don't worry, it's good for you - we promise! Ginger provides an antioxidant boost, has anti-inflammatory effects, and can help relieve muscle and joint pain. All in this easy to create treat ... WITH CHOCOLATE. And don't get us started on all the awesomeness that those chia hold - omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium.
Chia seeds act as a great thickener for this coconut milk pudding. Not only that, but chia seeds are a super source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and pack a full punch of fiber, iron, and calcium (which is so needed for bone health). Omega-3 fatty acids bring up our good cholesterol (HDL) which helps protect our heart against stroke and heart attacks. This is a single serve recipe, you may want to just go ahead and double - or triple - it straight away, it's THAT good!
This is an nontraditional scone recipe that calls for oats and cooked quinoa as the base. This combo works to make this a healthy breakfast scone packed with protein. We've included a super simple chia jam that pairs perfectly with these biscuits.
Yes ... you read that correctly! Life is short, sometimes, you do NEED dessert. A little sugar here and there is not going to kill you, it’s just not, but we always recommend eating dessert made from the highest quality ingredients, so that you’re completely satisfied and not putting chemical junk into your body. This lava cake recipe is adapted slightly from TexanErin. That said, these aren’t actually that high in sugar - just 1/4 a cup - and we use coconut sugar. Coconut sugar is quite low on the glycemic index and it contains inulin. Inulin has properties similar to probiotics, and helps with gut health which can boost to the immune system. These are also grain free for you grain- free eaters. And, believe it or not, they are a lot easier to make than you would think. Just be very careful not to over bake.
How's that for a mouthful?! Don't worry - these delicious muffins are easier to whip up than the name implies. Added bonus: they're grain free, high in protein, and packed full of antioxidants thanks to chia seeds, pumpkin and nut butter! We dare you to eat just one! This recipe calls for 12 muffins, or would make great mini muffins if you have that kind of tin, just shorten the cooking time appropriately so they do not over bake. Also, if you don't have a food processor you can also mix these by hand with chocolate chips before putting into muffin tray.
Take your Chia Pudding to a whole new level: This nutritious, antioxidant packed brain-food of a dessert/breakfast/snack will forever change the way you view indulgence! And how pretty is this rainbow of colors?
The perfect pancake for the whole family. These recipe is so easy to make because you bake the pancakes instead of griddle them. Filled with extra nutrients from nut butter, chia seeds and pumpkin. These are a member favorite for sure!! Adapted from Detoxinista's Grain Free Pumpkin Pancake Recipe
With a title like this, need we say much? This is a nutritious and delicious breakfast or grab and go snack. You can pour milk over it and eat it like cereal, stir some into your morning yogurt to make a parfait, or simply package it to go like any granola and enjoy on the go. When you pack your oatmeal with a lot of healthy fat and protein, you'll stay away from HANGRY for hours to come.
