Eat the Rainbow/Quick and Easy Breakfast Recipe Chia Pudding

As I plan our next month of Eat the Rainbow, I must keep in mind, when it comes to eating healthy, time is always a factor.  I don’t know when the world got so busy or why we are always rushing, but we always seem to be.  Because of this we need to be able to not only feed our bodies healthy good food but do it so we can dash out the door and jump into the land of rush, rush, rush!

Because breakfast needs to be quick and easy, fast food places keep a busy line of cars, in the morning, wrapped around the building.  Cars throwing thousands of dollars away annually to be fed fat laden meals, heavily laced with sugar and salt to hit our bodies and settle on our hips, thighs and protruding abdomens all in the name of rushing.

Let’s rewind back to the kitchen, please join me if you will.  An Eat the Rainbow breakfast would go something like this.  The night before measure 1 cup of cashews, cover in water and soak while you watch tv, surf the web, or do homework with the kids.

Before bed or whenever you are ready, take out your high speed blender, drain cashews and pop into blender along with:

  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract (if you don’t have it, skip it but it adds a wonderful flavor!)

blend into a nutmilk – make sure the cashews are fully blended.  This makes a marvelous, dairy free, chai milk!  Now turn your blender to the lowest setting and stir in 1/3 cup of chia seed.  Pour the mixture into a bowl, stick it in the fridge and go to bed.

Next morning your pudding is set and ready.  Pour some in a bowl, add a handful of raisins, a handful of blueberries and raspberries, sit down and ENJOY a nutritious breakfast.  Chia pudding is full of nutrients, fiber, vitamins and antioxidants! Try out these mouth-watering burgers for lunch.

Eat the Rainbow, quick and easy!

    Hi and thank you for the video. Is it 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract? That seems to be a bit much. Or is it another form of vanilla? Thanks.
