Chia Seed Paleo Porridge
If you don’t agree, you may change your mind when you try my gluten-free, grain-free, and impossibly delicious chia seed porridge. I’m a fan of the Paleo approach because it’s not about calorie-counting or portion control; rather, it’s about eating nutrient dense whole foods just like – vegetables, eggs, fruit, meat, fish, poultry, seeds, nuts & healthy fats and which to skip (processed foods, grains, dairy, beans, sugars).
It seems simple—but it can be hard to resist the allure of a quick a.m. sugar hit unless you know exactly what to reach for instead. Eating a brekkie that’s filling, nourishing and super easy to make gives you a morning full of all the goodness you’ll ever need.
Chia seeds are pretty great. They deliver protein, omega-three fatty acids, and fiber—and they taste heavenly when paired with fruit and home made almond milk, as in this super-simple plate full.
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds ground
1 cup flaxseed meal
1 1/2 cup chia seeds
1 cup nuts…select a mix of any nuts ground ( cashews, walnuts, almonds)
1 tbsp cinnamon (optional)
1/2 tsp saltGrind nuts & seeds in a blender and mix all ingredients together. Store in a glass jar in fridge.Use 1/2 cup of the mix to one cup water, preferably soaked overnight then gently heat in morning as a porridge.
