matcha power smoothie
Lately I’ve been on a full on caffeine bender. Every once in a while I find myself going overboard, and that’s usually when I need to double check what’s going on in my life (hello, why am I trading sleep for double shots of espresso?!?) and re-evaluate. I just told you all in my post on being productive that you need to treat yourself better, so I decided to start doing just that! Step one: find something to replace my coffee with.

I talked about how great matcha is a while back, but totally forgot all about it until I started digging through my kitchen cabinets. It’s a straight up wonder ingredient, so I decided to combine it with some of my other favorite ingredients to make a well rounded power smoothie. This is something that should definitely get you going first thing in the morning, but I could see it being a great afternoon pick-me-up as well.

So I’ve been looking for some easy breakfast recipes lately because I’m awful at actually eating breakfast, and came upon this! Chia pudding is probably the simplest recipe because you basically set it up and just leave it to do its thing. If you’re one of those people that has texture issues, this might not be for you (like, if you avoid rice pudding or tapioca for example).

Chia seeds have been proven to be beneficial to your health, as they’re packed with nutrients. They’re super high in:

  • antioxidants
  • protein
  • omega-3 fatty acids
  • fiber
  • healthy fats
  • and can help to reduce inflammation
