Alkalizing Chia Pudding

 

Somewhere along the line in the last year or two, I've transitioned into a full-fledged "morning person". Which is wild, because I used to loathe mornings. More on that journey here. I mention this because despite enjoying early mornings, it can still feel challenging to intentionally engage in my am routine (lemon water, sun exposure, meditation, skin care, latte) - which I so strongly feel sets a positive, grounded tone for the rest of my day - and have time to prepare a nourishing breakfast before having to dash out. And I know I'm not the only one. 

While I would love the luxury of sitting down to enjoy breakfast daily, the reality is that I'm often eating this first meal on-the-go. Most days, that means grabbing a jar of chia pudding that I batch-make at the beginning of each week. It's a true life saver. 

On they're own, chia seeds are rich in plant-based proteins and (the good kind of) fatty acids that the body relies on for energy production, mood support, and hormone stabilization. Once soaked, chia seeds expand in size, absorbing the liquid to create a pudding-like texture that, when ingested, provides deep cellular-level hydration and detoxification. Today's recipe elevates and expands upon these already impressive benefits to further alkalize, mineralize, energize, and detoxify the body, using one of my very favorite supplement lines - Elemental Wizdom

This groovy, high vibration company, based out of Beverly Hills of all places, is serving up some of the most unique, thoughtful, and quality-driven products I have ever tried. Their Metamorphosis Greens Powder is ultra cleansing, alkalizing, and energizing, and has become my go-to product for remineralizing on-the-go. I'm in the habit of adding a scoop to my chia pudding for a deeply nutritious grab-and-go breakfast, so I thought I'd share the simple yet potent recipe here.


ALKALIZING CHIA PUDDING

Makes about 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup organic chia seeds
  • 2.5 cups unsweetened mylk (almond, coconut, hemp, etc.)
  • 2 tbsp raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • 2-4 tsp Metamorphosis Greens Powder 

Preparation: Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, stirring well for about 2 minutes. Once the mixture appears smooth and well combined, allow the mixture to sit at room temperature for about 10 minutes.

Stir once again, and then place in the refrigerator, stored within an airtight container. Allow to set for at least an hour, and up to 4-5 days. 

If needed, more sweetener can be added to taste. Enjoy as is or topped with your favorite fruits and superfoods.

Turmeric + Honey Grapefruit Brûlée

A simple, playful, and nutrient-rich recipe that brings a whole new meaning to #lazyfancy food. I've been serving this as a light starter at breakfast - be it for a group of friends + family at a weekend brunch, or just me and my boyfriend before heading off to work on a Tuesday.

It's a totally fool-proof recipe and method (granted you keep a close eye on the broiler) that supplies the body with a medley of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. Among the benefits of this simple snack are increased immunity, brighter skin, boosted metabolic activity, and potent anti-inflammation within the body + mind for heightened energy, elevated mood, improved memory, weight-loss, and disease prevention. 

Though it's been part of my breakfast of choice recently (usually preceded by a sugar-free green juice and followed by avocado toast and fried eggs), this grapefruit brûlée makes an equally delicious and wholesome dessert post-dinner.
