I present to you this morning’s breakfast.
Since I prefer to eat a low carb, no sugar life as a whole (lets not lie…sometimes I eat milk chocolate ), I love finding new recipes that allow me to eat “old favourites”. It seems like all the things that give me the Continue reading »

So I’m Canadian, and yet, a few days ago I never found the time to put together a patriotic Canadian recipe. However, I did have time yesterday…but Canada Day had already passed. Oops.
Soooo…I reminded myself that the demographics of my readers are largely American, and decided to make something that celebrated the Fourth of July. I’m nice like that.
Just so it’s on the Continue reading »

Then, like magic, someone has entered the room with a breakfast tray with your Continue reading »

I’m not usually excited about Mondays…but last week I was thinking about Colourful Palate and my heart was filled with happy. Honestly, there are perks to recovering from my accident. I have more time. Also, I’m getting to the point where I can do a lot more, which is so encouraging. Therefore and forthwith, I’m going to Continue reading »

I’ve been looking for a low calorie, low sugar granola. Turns out those are hard to find.
You know what they say, if you want something done right you need to do it yourself.
Well, ok…maybe that’s not entirely true. I did find one brand that I loved, but it was a bit pricey for me to buy regularly. I decided to make it myself. Turns out it was ridiculously easy.
No baking. No crazy ingredients.
Just stirring all that superfood goodness.
Chia Superfood Granola
- 1/2 cup organic buckwheat grouts
- 1/4 cup dried cranberries
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1/4 cup sliced almonds
- 1/4 cup hemp hearts
Nutritional Info (per 2 tbsp): Calories: 70, Fat: 3.5g, Carbs: 8g, Fibre: 2.5g, Protein: 3g
Is it ridiculous to just say that the instructions are…like…just mix.
Well, that was hard.
So to eat this divine bunch of love…you take 2 tbsp. of cereal and mix it with about 1/2 cup of almond milk and let it sit a couple minutes.
Sounds meager, but the chia seeds expand and make it into a delicious, wholesome breakfast. And you can always have second helpings!
Chia seed fan, yay or nay?
