You guys, the change in the weather combined with this little viral infection I had has completely messed me up. I’m so sluggish lately and I’m having the hardest time getting my life back together. I woke up at 1 p.m. on Saturday AND Sunday! Who does that at 31? This is the reason I haven’t been in front of the camera lately, but I’m hoping a new diet, a little bit of exercise and a positive attitude will turn it all around.
So, for breakfast today, I had some chia seeds. I first started eating them about this time last year after my husband got me hooked. Chia is the Mayan word for strength and I listed all of the amazing benefits here.
This is a great recipe to make at night so it’s ready in the morning - especially if you STRUGGLE to get out of bed like me. You can also easily change it up by adding different kinds of fruits and it’s very very filling.
- 1 cup fresh raspberries plus a few extra for garnish
- 1 pinch ground cinnamon
- 3 tbsp chia seeds
