chia seeds the sunday edition [+ chia seed breakfast pudding]

 

Happy Sunday, you guys! When I was reevaluating my ideas for this space around the holidays, I realized I really missed my “Sunday Edition” link sharing posts. I always love discovering new blog posts or articles I missed during the week, and I wanted to bring that feature back. The twist? Well, it’s pretty yummy. You see, Sundays are my day. They’re not jam-packet with fun plans and errands like Saturdays seem to be, and one thing I always make a point to do on Sundays is make myself a yummy breakfast–it’s a nice change of pace to the yogurts that serve as my a.m. meal during the week.

 

So the new version of The Sunday Edition will include a quick, yummy breakfast recipe (we all know it’s the best meal anyways) and a few great links to read alongside it. First up? Chia seed breakfast pudding!

Don’t let the word “pudding” fool you…this is actually a super healthy and filling breakfast. I’m sure by now you’ve heard of magical chia seeds, and this recipe combo’s them with two other ingredients to make a delicious savory breakfast.

 

You’ll need:

 

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 3/4 cup almond milk (or regular milk)
  • agave
  • berries

Simply combine the chia seeds, milk and agave (the amount is up to you, depending on how sweet you like it) in a bowl and whisk with a fork until all the seeds are combined and damp from the milk. Put into the fridge for five minutes, take out to whisk again, then back in the fridge for another 5-8 minutes. You’ll notice the seeds will start to develop a gelatinous film around them and it will take on the consistency of pudding–this is what you want! Let it sit until all the milk has absorbed, then top with berries and enjoy with these fun links:

 

I love getting restaurant suggestions from fellow New Yorkers, so Clara’s suggestions always make my list.

 

I’m a sucker for tacos. And brussels sprouts. Brussels sprouts tacos? Yes, please!

 

Clementine Daily always puts up the best daily inspiration quotes. I’m constantly pinning them!

 

This upholstered headboard from The Everygirl is next up on my DIY list.

 

Dina’s Nutella stuffed cinnamon-sugar muffins sound like the perfect breakfast treat!

 

Have you guys heard of Oyster? Apparently, it’s like the Netflix of books. I’m considering signing up (you can get them on your Kindle or iPad), so let me know your thoughts if you’ve tried it!

    That pudding looks great! I also know some people who use chocolate almond milk to add even more flavor to their pudding!

    This post is so perfectly timed, it’s crazy – I just bought chia seeds but had no idea what to do with them! Thanks, girl!

    Love this idea – Sundays are totally ME days! Also, so so excited to try Oyster. I’m bummed it’s not for Nook, but I read iBooks on my phone sometimes.

    I haven’t heard of Oysters, but that sounds like a good idea! And this “pudding” sounds amazing! How have I never made this?!

    I’ve had a big jar of chia seeds sitting in my kitchen for weeks – I’ve gotta try this! I’ve always seen chia pudding put in the fridge overnight. Good to know it can be made quickly!
