I’m going to give yall a recipe without the BS of my life, what happened for me to incorporate this into my life, and how I’m a better person because of my buckwheat porridge. I feel like a British folklore character for saying “porridge”. If you want to know more about buckwheat, skip to the bottom for nutrition info.
-complex carb = good for energy
-soluble fiber source = slow release of glucose into your blood stream, which means it’s stabilizing for blood glucose!
-Buckwheat is rich in B vitamins and is a complete protein (all 9 of the essential amino acids present!)
-whole grain that’s gluten-free. I know people are preachin’ against grains, but that’s bogus. Whole grains are so great for your gut and your heart.
It’s free of gluten and dairy but full of fun, if that’s your thing!
-1 C coconut yogurt (I used vanilla)
-small splash of milk (sorry, I’m still working on the measuring thing
-1/4 C chia seeds
-1/2 C raspberries
-1/2 C blackberries
-1/2 C strawberries
-1/2 C kiwi, peeled and sliced
-Mix kiwi, blackberries, and splash of almond milk (we’re talkin’ probably less than 1/4 cup of almond milk. Jusssst a splash) in a medium-large mixing bowl.
-Once mixed(ish), stir 1 C coconut yogurt into mixture
-Add chia seeds and stir some more
-Pour in glass container and refrigerate overnight.
-Enjoy a serving for breakfast (about 1/2 cup), topped with favorite granola
When you wake up in the morning, this should be your view:
I know it doesn’t look all that appetizing, but it is. Oh. It is. Promise.
About chia seeds:
-not just for chia pets
Chia seeds have:
-Omega-3 fatty acids
-high in protein (about 4g/serving in this pudding!- not including the protein from yogurt)
Let me know what you think, or how you played with this recipe to make it even better!
