Chia Power Bowl
I love Chia simply because these seeds are a quick and easy-to-use source of protein, healthy fats, dietary fiber, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, all rolled into one neat package. This cocoa chia oatmeal can be made in a matter of minutes, so there is no reason to skip breakfast anymore. Just grab it before heading out to school or work.
This recipe is also totally customizable. You can easily substitute soy milk or regular milk for the almond milk. Or, use raisins instead of dried cranberries and blueberries. For a sweeter oatmeal, add a touch of maple syrup or honey. I found that the dried blueberries and cranberries made the oatmeal sweet enough, so I omitted the honey.
Cocoa regulates heartbeat, blood pressure, and sodium levels.
Almost all carbs from chia are fiber.
Combine your bowl with blueberries and bananas.
Enjoy with a protein smoothie or whatever drink you like.
