Berry Chia Breakfast Bowl

My mouth is in love.

Dear friends, may I introduce you to this luscious Berry Chia Breakfast Bowl?  I want to eat this for breakfast every day.

And with all its summertime berry-ness and delicious creaminess – not to mention the load of health benefits berries and chia offer – I suspect you will agree with me.

Chia!?

So, if you are like me and tend to quickly skip over recipes that have ingredients in them that aren’t currently in your pantry or frig, I get it.

But here’s the deal: In the name of this creamy, luscious Chia Breakfast Bowl, you need to get yourself some chia!

The good news is getting yourself some chia is so easy.

Why Chia?

Chia seed is a great source of omega-3’s – which is good for your mood.  It also offers you loads of fiber – which is an excellent help for weight loss.

5 Health Benefits of Berries

Berries offer an incredible number of health benefits – more than just about any other group of foods. Here are just a few:

Berries for Berry Chia Breakfast Bowl


1. Berries are loaded with antioxidants.

2. Berries are super high in fiber . Research shows the fiber in berries not only helps to burn fat, but it also suppresses the appetite.

3. Berries contain a phytonutrient called ellagic acid. This nutrient has been shown to inhibit cancer cell growth and deactivate cancer-causing compounds.

4. Berries are a great source of vitamin C – which helps strengthen your immune system, keep your eyes healthy, and even keep your skin looking younger.

5. Blueberries are especially healthful. Studies have shown blueberries to help prevent macular degeneration, varicose veins, hemorrhoids, Alzheimer’s, and peptic ulcers.

    This sounds really good. And great for summer, because it doesn’t need to be cooked.

    I buy teff flour from Anthony’s Goods and can vouch for their high-quality products.

  2. This recipe is amazingly delicious. You must try this. I have had the traditional chia pudding and this is another level. Thank you Jennifer!!
