Beat the bloat soakie
This breekie has been doing me wonders the couple of weeks, nothing fancy I know but after the fiancé left I was feeling more than a little bloated (we ate ALL the food) and lacking energy!
Annnnd to be honest wrangling the babes in cafés solo for three meals a day just isn't fun so we've been making breakfast at home and I'm loving it! I find I'm often asking Cas to behave better (whatever that means, he's a nearly three year old with lots of energy) while I'm trying to eat and it can be bloody stressful! Once a lady came up to me and asked him to stop playing the drums on the table as this was a "public place", she was clearly hungover...
Anyway, yay for eating at home in a stress free environment!! This recipe is super simple, like I don't think it could get any simpler.
1/2 to 3/4 cup mix of seeds, approx. I don't actually have any measurers here in Bali so this is a total guess, you may like more or less. My fav mix is mainly chia, then linseeds and maybe a couple of teaspoons of sesame seeds. You could also add sunflower and pumpkin seeds, I just don't particularly like the texture in this kind of soaked breakfast.
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 dessert spoons coconut yoghurt or cream
1 serve your fav plant protein
Frozen raspberries or blueberries
Cacao nibs, to topp
1. Add seeds to water into a jar/bowl and stir mindfully.
2. Soak seeds in overnight, I go for a 1-2 ratio so 1/2 a cup of seeds and one cup of water. You'll probably want to add more water in the morning depending on your desired texture. I tend to soak these in the fridge here in Bai but back home I'd just leave it in the cupboard overnight.
3. The following morning stir though protein powder, cinnamon and coconut yoghurt. Top with berries and cacao nibs for a little crunch! Simple, delicious + light - Enjoy!
I particularly love this as I normally like training fasted but here in Bali it's just too late by the time I drop Cas to school and get to the gym and I find a mini size pre training is perfect!!
Health + Happiness - always!
