4 Tasty Breakfasts — You Won’t Believe the Surprising Ingredient They Have in Common!
We all remember Chia Pets, right? Those funny little creature-shaped pots that sprout green leaves when watered?
Well, the same seeds behind these funky kid projects might be a worthwhile addition to your pantry! The small seeds are quickly becoming nutritionists' favorite miracle seeds—they provide a healthy energy boost, they're rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, and they can replace heavier, fattier foods like cream or eggs.
When placed in liquid (almond milk, for example), chia seeds expand in 1-2 hours, and can serve as a thickener for pudding, soups, and other delicious treats! There's no need to cook them—these wonder seeds expand on their own.
In honor of the Chia Pet tradition, try these four scrumptious recipes!
1. Orange Spice Chia Energy Muffins
2. Vegan Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls With Chia
3. Superfood Triple Berry Chia Pudding
4. Healthy Protein Smoothies With Chia Seeds
With these quick and delicious chia seed recipes, you'll get the boost you need and may even have enough time to get back in bed with your hubby for some last-minute cuddling.
