Sweet Breakfast Scramble

Sweet Breakfast Scramble
I can’t believe wedding week is finally here! I promise that after the big day/honeymoon, I’ll be baking more! Although my ingredients are always wholesome, it is important to remember that although a brownie is made with avocado and maple syrup it is STILL a brownie and should be treated as such. A healthy treat is called a treat for a reason and should always be eaten in moderation (if you can control yourself!). In my attempt cut back on the baked goods and bread, I concocted this sweet breakfast scramble to satisfy my sweet tooth without it loading up on carbs. This breakfast comes together so quickly and it is PACKED with protein to keep you full for hours. Lots of you saw it on snapchat and sent me your versions! So, I figured I should share it here.

Zach and I get married on Saturday, ah! Then we set off to Italy and Greece for our honeymoon. Be sure to check my Instagram stories or snapchat for some insider pictures of the special day and all the delicious food we eat in Europe. I am preparing another recipe to share next week, then I am going to take a little social media/blog break. I’ll be there but much less often. Can’t wait to tell you all about it upon my arrival. Have an amazing few weeks everyone! Stay tuned for some delicious recipes…

Chia Pudding 101

Chia Pudding
Chia seeds are quite similar to flax but requires no grinding to receive all its benefits. These seeds have more omega-3s than salmon and the right amount of omega-6 which helps support heart health and beautiful skin, hair and nails. Chia seeds also have about 11 g of fibre per ounce which will help aid in digestion and staying fuller for longer. Furthermore, per ounce, chia has up to 3 times more calcium than skim milk!

Chia can be enjoyed as a topping on salads, oatmeal and yogurt. It can also be added into baked goods, smoothies or used as an egg substitute for vegans. When added with liquid this seed becomes like a superfood tapioca pudding. In recreating my last chia pudding recipe, I realized that adding that extra tablespoon of oats makes for a creamier result. The recipe given here is my usual base, but I often will change it up with one of the add ins mentioned below. The best part about chia pudding is you can prepare it for the entire week in one day, and change up your toppings daily depending on your mood.
