The past weeks I have eaten muesli for breakfast, almost everyday.
I just varied the fruits and milk (rice, spelt, and almond milk) however, since I read this article about rice milk, I decided to no longer buy it.
Every few weeks they discover new things that are bad for your health, that cause cancer, or have other side effects.
Now, I’m not living my life in fear of diseases or death, we’re all going to die eventually, so I don’t think that my life gets dictated by articles like that. But as long as I have good and tasty alternatives (I prefer almond milk to rice milk anyway), I just want to avoid the things that I know cause harm to the body.
I will stick with nut milk from now on. Today I finally bought a nut milk bag, so I can make my own nut milk at home.
At some point I got tired of muesli so I switched to green smoothies for a while, which I really loved. But even that got boring at some point.
One day I made porridge, but I wasn’t happy with the result. I’m just not a big fan of it.
So I was really excited when I saw my friend Lisa’s chia pudding recipe last night.
I have made chia pudding before, and I really loved it, but for some reason it didn’t cross my mind to make it again. Earlier that day I had bought different kinds of nuts and seeds, so I had everything I needed for the pudding.
I was already in bed when I read the recipe. For Chia pudding it’s recommended to let it soak overnight. So I got out of bed again, and prepared everything (it only took a few minutes anyway).
I poured almond milk into a jar (up to about 3/4 full), added
3 Tbs of chia seeds
1/2 tsp maca powder
1/2 tsp lucuma powder and
I stirred it well and put it in the fridge overnight. In the morning I just added
…and voilà, the perfect breakfast is either served to eat right away, or to take it with you if you’re already in a rush.
Now I’m the type of person, if I find something (new) that I like, I eat it over and over again, every day, until I cannot see it anymore. At some point in my teenage years I ate pizza every day for a month.
When I called to order my pizza they already recognized my voice.
For the next years I couldn’t even hear the word ‘pizza’.
In order to avoid this happening to the lovely chia pudding, I decided to vary my breakfasts some more.
Enjoy your weekend with a really yummy chia pudding! Namasté.
