Recipe – Chia Porridge Two Ways


What’s great about it:

Oats are one of the healthiest breakfasts you can eat, yet variety is also key! Here is a summer version of a breakfast pudding to be enjoyed on an early morning. Make it tonight, let it set and grab a spoonful in the morning. Best of all, place the mixture into jars the night before and enjoy at work or on your daily commute.
