Chia Bowl

20121117-IMG_7967.jpg

No matter how hard we try to have leisurely mornings, breakfast usually ends up being a rushed endeavor at our house. That's why it's extra important that we have some healthy go to's, so we don't end up defaulting to something not so healthy or worse - skipping it altogether. We're typically smoothie people but these days breakfast has taken on a whole new meaning. We are OBSESSED with our latest recipe, a perfect winter concoction that has enough antioxidants to make you live forever, no matter how much stuffing you ate the night before. We call it the Chia Bowl.

Ingredients: 1 cup honey Greek yogurt or your favorite plain-ish yogurt (I use the whole fat kind because it makes breakfast stay with me a lot longer before I get hungry again. Worth it!) Sprinkle of dried goji berries 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds 2 teaspoons chia seeds 2 tablespoons of your favorite granola - we are using Trader Joe's pumpkin flax granola because it's festive

Yogurt first, then chias, poms, goji's, and granola. Enjoy!
