Are you looking for a simple and healthy grab-and-go breakfast that will help you lose weight and make your skin glow?
I’ve got you covered with this super simple, make-ahead breakfast that can be prepared in less than 5 minutes the night before . . . just put it in the fridge and it’s ready to eat the next morning.
With this in the fridge, you won’t have to resort to all those quick breakfast options that are so bad for you . . . fast food from the drive-thru, cereals, granola bars, pastries . . . most are highly processed, full of sugar and empty calories, and they will sabotage your wedding day weight-loss goals.
Have this for breakfast instead . . .
Quick Mango Chia Pudding
Makes 1 serving
2 tablespoons chia seeds
½ cup nut milk (like almond, coconut, or cashew milk)
¼ teaspoon real vanilla extract
¼ cup chopped mango (frozen or fresh)
Combine chia seeds, nut milk, and vanilla in a container with a lid (I like to use a small mason jar), and shake to mix. Add mango, put the lid back on, and refrigerate overnight. It’ll be ready to eat the next morning!
Why this recipe will help you meet your wedding weight-loss and fitness goals:
- No added sugar (only the natural sugar from the mango)
- Chia seeds are a great plant-based source of Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and fiber — all of which support weight loss
- This breakfast may look little, but it’s full of nutrients and therefore surprisingly filling — it’ll keep you satisfied all the way to lunch!
- As an added bonus, those Omega-3s and protein from the chia seeds, plus the antioxidants in the mango, are great for your skin. Chia seeds and mango are two of my 31 recommended foods for clear and glowing skin from the inside-out.
PS: This also makes a nice little weeknight dessert when you just need a little something sweet.
