    they make a delish make ahead, no cook breakfast porridge. i just made a batch for the next few mornings.



    [​IMG]

    1/4 cup rolled oats (not fast cook or instant)
    1/3 cup skim milk
    1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
    1 1/2 tsp chia seeds
    sweetener (i used 1 packet stevia in the raw an 1 tsp of maple syrup)

    put in a half pint mason jar, put on lid, shake. open, add blueberries to top and reseal. put in fridge and eat in the morning.



    Chia seeds:
    • have more Omega 3 fatty acids than flax seed (important for heart health)
    • are the richest non-marine whole food source of Omega-3 (better than salmon)
    • absorb 10 times their weight in water and transform into a gel-like substance--great for athletes for maintaining hydration and helps with weight loss by making you feel full longer
    • are as high in protein as quinoa
    • are loaded with calcium, potassium, Vitamin B, and anti-oxidants
    • help balance blood sugar via the gelling action of the seed and it’s unique combination of soluble and insoluble fiber that slow down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars
    • have a neutral taste so they will take on the other flavors in a recipe
    • can be eaten whole (unlike flax seed); they don't have to be ground before adding them to food in order to digest them and benefit from their nutrients
    • have a two year shelf life, stored at room temperature (flax seeds quickly become rancid and loose their nutritional value)

    that summer porridge/breakfast porridge i just made is super healthy.
    1 serving (1 half-pint mason jar):
    215 calories
    4g fat (mine has less (i think 0g fat) because i used no fat greek yogurt)
    48g carbs
    8g fiber
    12g protein

    The container behind the blueberries says fag. Your fridge is trying to tell you something.
