This is a really quick breakfast that I’ve been enjoying lately.
It’s really just another spin on a basic bowl of oats. I know some of you go crazy when I use the microwave, but what can I tell you, I use it, I like it, and I think it’s a great option when time is not on my side.
I just bought my first bag of chia seeds and I’m really liking them. They have the texture of a poppy seed and are packed with fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. I definitely need to do a little more research on them but in the meantime if you are curious to know more about these little seeds you can check out wikipedia as an easy place to start.
