We all know that mornings can be hectic, and it’s very tempting to say “I don’t have time to prepare a healthy breakfast”.
However, you can make a delicious and nutritious breakfast meal the night before, and it only takes a few minutes! Just soak chia seeds in nut milk and the magic happens while you sleep!
The only downside of having this pudding for breakfast is that you might feel guilty because it tastes like a dessert! But have no fear – it’s free of refined sugar and unhealthy additives, and it’s really good for you!
On top of that, it’s very filling and keeps your blood sugar levels stable.
