For those mornings when you don’t have much time, this breakfast is easy to prep ahead of time. You’ll be energized for your busy day!
Combine the oats, buckwheat groats, and chia, hemp, flax mix. This can be made ahead of time and stored in airtight containers until you are ready to use it (the flax and hemp are supposed to be stored in the refrigerator so may either want to leave these ingredients out if preparing the mix in advance or store it in the frig). The night before you plan to eat this, add any of the optional mix-ins you’d like and add the milk. The mixture should seem extra watery at first so don’t be afraid to use a little more than you think (this will all soak in overnight). Place the mixture in the refrigerator overnight and it will be ready in the morning!
NOTES: The optional ingredients can be added for soaking or in the morning before eating. For more versatility, play with adding your favorite spices and maybe even cocoa powder!
I teach, write, and talk a lot about wellness and try to live as an example. But the truth is that we all live in the real world where making healthy choices is not easy. Implementing changes into real life is hard. This blog is a compilation of recipes, tips, and tools to help incorporate wellness into daily life. Some come from my own personal wellness journey while others have been shared by clients, friends, and family. We're all learning together so please share your own tips as well!
