Coconut Chia Seed Pudding

Some mornings, I enjoy spending some extra time to prepare a nice breakfast. Other days, I heavily depend on overnight oats or any baked goods I have for the week. Also, there’s those days I have time but I just don’t want to use the stove, clean more dishes than required and simply give myself a break from cooking.

That’s when overnight oats or this overnight chia seed pudding recipe pulls through! Recently, I’ve been enjoying waking up earlier to get in a workout, preparing breakfast and sitting down with a cup of coffee + my bible. Nothing like starting off the day with God’s word and reminding myself that I am beyond grateful to be doing what I do.

There’s times where i feel worn out. I feel very discouraged and it’s DIFFICULT to share that on social media. It’s difficult because I feel a need to always be on top of my game, but what I’ve been growing in is that it’s okay to be vulnerable. We are all human. We all make mistakes. We all have good days and bad days. We all feel discouraged at times and need encouragement. So I just wanted to share that I am extremely grateful for your prayers, your words of encouragements and just the positivity you all bring into my life through simple messages and comments.

Anyways, I’m going to bring myself back on track here because I went on a small tangent. I’ve been depending on overnight oats and preparing things in advance so I have a shorter prep time in the morning. This includes pre-roasting sweet potatoes, soaking overnight oats/chia pudding, baking egg muffins and breads, etc. Nothing is worse than coming home after a workout and waiting an hour to eat. Ermm, nobody got time for that!

I added some vanilla coconut collagen for a kick of protein in this bowl. Fruits, granola and nut butter are 3 toppings I have in my bowls 99% of the time. They’re basically necessities.

Also, I don’t eat the strawberry stems. They’re just for the photo. I love this bowl which has a mix of crunchy and creamy. Here’s to a breakfast filled with heart-healthy fats, fiber and protein!
