It was a frosty Boston morning.. the date 14th February! Ironically, it also happened to be the coldest day in more than a decade – the universe’s way of asking all those in love to cuddle a bit more longer!
I am atleast a few years behind in trying Chia seeds, but boy am I hooked! If you are like me – always struggling to find healthy but delicious breakfast options and moreover – vegetarian ones – this recipe is a blessing! Trust me – its a revolution! All of you who know me or follow me on Instagram – know that I am ALWAYS hungry! I love this recipe because its quick to prepare, healthy, filling and almost feels like having dessert for breakfast. That’s a blessing in my books.
Oats with Almond Milk & Chia Seeds
- Old Fashioned oats
- Chia seeds
- Almond milk
- Bananas/Raisins/Apples/Berries/Nuts ( walnuts, pecans, almonds)
1. Soak the oats overnight in almond milk ( and put in the refrigerator )
2. In the morning, add more milk if you like & top with anything your heart fancies ( I mix it up – with different combination of nuts & fruits – Walnuts+Bananas is my favorite though)
3) Sprinkle chia seeds (generously)
Let me know if you give this a try =)) xo – Neha
It’s weird how the weather plays such a huge role in our lives in Boston – it is one of the most common conversation starters and sometimes the only topic of discussion ( snooze fest – sorry! ) Agreed – its difficult to break the ice with people you’ve never met before – but I think the universe now demands us to be creative – to make that lasting impression – that may help you land a job or get an invitation to the most happening dinner party. No pressure, right? =)) I found these cool books – Conversation starters for any occasion & Family Gathering table topics – which are fun to read and might come in handy to mix it up when you aren’t feeling so creative!
Talking about being creative – did you notice that I am not wearing a jacket or a sweater or boots. Must be the weather – huh? =)) I recently came across this store – Show me your Mumu and while I don’t know what Mumu really means, this is me showing my boho side – my alter ego’s mumu! What I am currently wearing as a top, is actually a dress and is going to soon make it back to the blog styled differently – weather permitting, ofcourse! x0 – Neha
