Mornings can be busy and leave you feeling rushed. Rather than grabbing a sugar-filled granola bar or pop-tart, try preparing this recipe the night before for a grab-and-go breakfast!
Having fruit for breakfast is amazing for lots of reasons. But when you eat fruit on an empty stomach, your digestive system is better able to quickly digest the fruit into usable energy and inflammation-fighting antioxidants. Eating fruit later in the day can actually cause indigestion, gas, and bloating because fruit is harder for your body to digest when eaten after other heavy foods.
This recipe is super simple and quick to make. It starts with a base of berries (among the lowest of any fruit on the glycemic index scale….meaning it doesn’t spike your blood sugar levels as much as other fruits can!) But because there is still sugar in berries, it is good to pair them with a healthy fat to help slow the absorption of sugar into your bloodstream. This helps you sustain your energy and keeps you full until lunch time!
1 Tbsp hemp seeds
1 Tbsp chia seeds
optional: 1 Tbsp organic local honey
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl and you're ready to go! Or you can make this the night before and put all the ingredients in a to-go container!
We love pairing this breakfast with our bullet-proof coffee. Bullet-proof coffee can be made several ways, but our favorite is a cup of brewed coffee blended with 1 tsp coconut oil and 1/4 cup dairy-free milk. This adds another serving of heathy fats to your morning and helps keep you full and energized until lunch.
