Overnight Chia Pudding // Berries

chia Pudding1Overnight chia pudding is my new go-to breakfast. I love this recipe, for two reasons. Firstly because it’s just so easy to make. I’m not a morning person, not matter how hard I try to change my habits, I always fall back into a rut of getting up, with just enough time to shower and get out the door. So a lot of the time I just up pick up some yogurt and granola concoction on the way to work. It’s all about organisation – they say. Easier said than done, says I!

Because this recipe only take a few mins to prepare and can be done the night before, it’s helped me change my bad habits and save some moola! I just need to make sure I get up a few mins earlier to eat my tasty breakfast at home!

The second reason, and really the most important is that this little pudding is bursting with health benefits. What the chia seed may lack in size, it compensates in nutritional value! Stocked full of goodness like antioxidants, fibre and omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds are fantastic source of energy. It’s a no-brainer really! With summer looming, now’s the perfect time to kick start healthy eating habits into gear. I’m looking forward to mixing this recipe up and trying some different additions. Continue reading

But these certainly come close and as there is no butter or added sugar – you can pretty much enjoy these raw brownies guilt-free! In fact they have health benefits; Continue reading

Brunch Recipe – Breakfast Tart

Living Easy // Breakfast Tart
It’s been a while since I have posted a recipe on the blog but I promise this breakfast tart recipe will make up for it! Regular readers of my blog will know that brunch is one of my favourite weekend rituals. Usually I love to get out, try new eateries, catch up with friends and depending on the occasion have a sneaky tipple or two! But sometimes Sunday mornings are best served cosied up at home and just because your at home in your PJs doesn’t mean that you can’t go all out!

Recipe – Buttermilk Pancakes

Living in Canada I come across little things that differ from home all the time, pancakes are one of these such things. At home our pancakes are thin and flat more like a crepe really, and over here they are thick and fluffy with the addition of baking soda. Buttermilk pancakes were also new to me and I finally tried making them myself using this recipe a few weeks ago, simple to make and they make the perfect breakfast or pancake tuesday treat.

However as delicious as they were this Pancake Tuesday I’m going to stick with the old traditional recipe, you can catch (here) from my post 2yrs ago when I mixed up the days and had Pancake Thursday instead! Or you could try the Banana Pancakes I posted (here). Last but not least I also created a Pancake Pinterest board (here) incase you need some filling inspiration. Enjoy! Continue reading
