Invigorating Morning Breakfast from Café Gratitude
Every morning is a chance to refresh, renew, and rejuvenate your body + mind for the day ahead. After you set your morning intentions, head to the kitchen to whisk up one of our favorite morning meals - Chia Seed Pudding!
Not only are chia seeds are packed with the staples of a healthy breakfast - antioxidants, calcium, protein, and fiber - but this pudding allows you to get a little more creative with your morning meal. Spruce up your bowl with seasonal fruits, delectable sauces, and fresh herbs. We suggest giving your pudding a berry blast - goji berries, strawberries, and blueberries - because your body can never have too many antioxidants.
