Breakfasts can be a struggle for a lot of people. Woke up late, not hungry, running around getting ready, kids need to get to the school bus, etc. What if I told you that you can have this tasty, healthy and filling grab-and-go breakfast right out of your refrigerator? It's true, all you need to do is throw the ingredients in a mason jar the night before and just grab from the fridge in the morning! Try!
What are the benefits of chia seeds? These unassuming little seeds are a wonderful source of omega-3 fatty acids (the GOOD fat, that helps raise your healthy HDL cholesterol), and are rich in anti-aging antioxidants. They have a high fiber content so they keep you full for hours! Great for those busy mornings.
