November Breakfast Challenge: Days 19 – 25
Good Monday morning, loves!
How was your weekend?
Mine was one of the best! I’m so grateful my Mom is here and that I’m recovering so well after having all four of my wisdom teeth removed this past Friday. It really didn’t affect me much at all. No swelling, no bruising, not much pain at all, but I did still take it easy. No GPP for me these past few days, but my Mom, Eddie, and I did spend a few hours in the mall on Saturday and got out to see The Hunger Games Catching Fire, too! Although we didn’t enjoy the movie at all really, this sashimi dinner definitely made up for it!
Luckily my Mom and Eddie aren’t fans of sashimi because I wasn’t about to share this boat with anyone ;)
Speaking of good food, this past weeks worth of breakfasts have been amazing. Maybe the best week yet? I’ve tried many new recipes and they are all winners! Enjoy today’s recap of the November Breakfast Challenge and I hope you leave feeling inspired! :D
November 20 – Chocolate Coconut Flour Pancakes by Wendy layered with 2% plain Greek yogurt and warm cherries (recipe to come)
November 21 – Apple Pie Chia Pudding (recipe below)
November 22 – Chocolate Avocado Pudding
November 23 – Sautéed onions and mushrooms and 2 fried eggs seasoned with pepper over a bed of steamed kale sprinkled with nutritional yeast
November 25 – Gingerbread Chia Pudding, Cinnamon Spiked Greek Yogurt, and Warmed Pears (recipe will be posted tomorrow)
Apple Pie Chia Pudding
1 1/2 c almond milk*
3 TBSP chia seeds
1 small – medium apple, grated
1 scoop vanilla protein powder, optional
1/2 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a blender, blend together all ingredients except chia seeds and apple. Once all ingredients are blended together, add in chia seeds and grated apple. Allow to set for at least 30 minutes before serving.
I served my chia pudding warm by heating it in the microwave for a couple of minutes and topped it will cold plain Greek yogurt and extra cinnamon. I love topping my chia puddings with Greek yogurt. I really enjoy the contrast between textures.
*Any liquid can be used and amount needed may vary due to the size of your apple, if you used protein powder, etc.
How was your weekend? Which breakfast of mine would you like to try this week?
P.S. make sure if you did anything that you’re proud of this weekend to let me know so I can feature you in the upcoming High Five Friday post :D
