Breakfast In A Jar: Daughter Edition

So a few weeks ago you posted your own recipe for Breakfast In A Jar using the magical, mystical, super-food that is Chia Seeds. Well, last night I thought I would make myself a breakfast in a jar, but I found a lot of recipes online that suggested using Old Fashioned Rolled Oats in addition to Chia Seeds so it tastes a little more oatmeal-y and has a little more fiber!

I actually have to say after trying straight up Chia Seed Pudding, I think I might have enjoyed this more without Rolled Oats, but I think it was pretty good nonetheless!

Start off with 1/4 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats and 2 Tsp Chia Seeds in a Mason Jar (or any Jar really…). Add 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt1/3 cup + 1 tbsp plain Almond Milk2 tsp honey. Stir everything until pretty well blended and then for good luck, screw the cap on and shake to make sure it’s all really mixed through! Now get a handful of fresh blueberries and raspberries, toss them on top, shake the jar (gently) and place in fridge overnight. Bring into work, and after Cosmology, enjoy a delicious fiber-and-protein-packed breakfast!

And the jar helps with portion control!

Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia seeds are climbing their way to the top of my favorites list. Maybe once we both are done with the semester, we can do a “favorites week” and try to cook foods featuring our favorite dishes – i.e., spinach, smashed cauliflower, things with red onions, spaghetti squash and scallops would all appear on my list. (So would some other things that I’m trying to avoid right now like Chocolate Chip Mint Ice Cream and crinkly potato chips, but we won’t worry about those right now…).

So I’m defrosting some chicken breast for tonight’s dinner, but I don’t know what to do with it. I’m (unfortunately) done with all my spinach and potatoes and shallots, but I also have all the makings for your Linda’s Sofrito (but you haven’t posted the recipe even though you’ve used it here and here – whyyyy). I think Linda’s Sofrito sounds so… brand-able and delicious! Linda means pretty in Spanish, so it works really well!

Anyways. Long day ahead, but I packed a very fruit-centric lunch of banana & almond butter sandwhich, the other half of said banana, fresh raspberries and blueberries, and pomegranate yogurt!

Mom, and readers since we have a few followers now (Woohoo!!), tell me what to do with my chicken breasts tonight if you think of anything good! It’s also GLORIOUS out and soon I’m going to fire up our grill and start grilling stuff so any grill-recipes should be posted with details!!
