Last week we shared some recipe blogs which can be included in your ideal healthy breakfast menu for the entire family and now we are back to make you understand how chia is important to be included in all your healthy breakfast menus.
Chia Seeds…add them into your smoothies, oatmeal, cereal, and baking recipes. These tiny little seeds are packed full of nutrition! I have to admit, I didn’t begin using them until recently, but now that I have… I sprinkle them into everything, and can’t imagine a healthy breakfast menu without them! They don’t have a taste, but they do gel up, a bit like tapioca. They thicken smoothies and puddings nicely if you allow them to soak for a while.
The best way to eat chia seeds is in a smoothie of course! I love adding chia seeds into all of my smoothie recipes as they don’t change the taste at all. There goes a popular adage, “good things come in small packages”. Case in point: Chia seeds. This healthy breakfast recipe will keep you fuller for longer, boosting your memory, protecting your heart against attack, and stroke.
This healthy breakfast Indian babies can enjoy as much. Here’s hoping our easy recipe will find it’s place in an equally healthy breakfast menu of your kitchen.

3. 2 Tbsp Slurrp Farm Chia Seeds
4. 2 Tbsp Slurrp Farm Nut Powder
