Strawberry Chia Pudding

If you’re reading this post, please direct some positive thoughts/energy in my direction and/or pray for me today! I need all the positivity I can get for the test I’m taking! <3

Since real-life me is stuck at a prometric testing center taking an 8-hour test, virtual-me will be sharing a super simple + quick chia “pudding” recipe with you! :] I’ll be including a review of the Homestead Creamery milk soon, but for now, enjoy!

Strawberry Chia Pudding

Ingredients:
~6 oz. Homestead Creamery strawberry milk
-3 tbsp chia seeds
-2 tbsp hemp seeds

Instructions:
1) Pour milk into a mason jar (or some kind of container, preferably with a lid).
2) Scoop in chia seeds and hemp seeds.

4) Mix and consume!

Banana Almond Microwave Muffin

From start to finish, this took under 5 minutes to make! :] It may not look the most appetizing, but it’s great as a grab-and-go breakfast. I threw all the ingredients into a mug before going to school for my morning workout, microwaved it and bam! There you go. :O I didn’t want to microwave it for much longer, lest it get all dry and difficult to eat. Two minutes seems like the perfect consistency–moist and tastes just like banana bread (which it pretty much is)! The guy sitting next to me asked if that’s what it was and said it smelled amazing.

This is another one of those crazy meal-replacement calorie bombs, but…so many nutrients and good fats! :] It’s much better than many alternatives out there!

Portable Chocolate Protein Oatmeal

I love this whole fasted cardio thing, but it makes consuming anything other than protein shakes in the morning a little difficult. I love my protein smoothies and all, but when it’s freezing cold in the morning, sometimes it’s nice to not drink something that’s also freezing cold. Tupperware has solved many of these problems though, and chocolate milk happens to be one of the best post-workout recovery items you can have. (I still have 20+ cartons from the Zombie half-marathon that I’m working through.
