In winter after removing the bowl from the fridge you may wish to place it on the microwave for 1 minute (to bring contents to room temperature). Take out of the microwave and then add the sliced banana, raisins and sprinkle some cinnamon.
A nutritious little seed high in polyunsaturated fats. Chia seeds have a subtle nutty taste which allows you to add them to anything you eat or drink. Chia seeds absorb up to 10 times their weight in water leaving you fuller for longer.
Hulled Hemp Seeds
A tasty, nutty seed, rich in protein. Hulled seeds have had their shells removed to provide you with delicious, easy to digest seeds high in protein and essential fatty acids.
Seedless, sundried, preservative- and sulphur-free are the best. Raisins add sweetness and energy.
My favourite brand for chia seeds, hemp seeds and raisins is Nature’s Choice.
Go for plain yogurt with live bifidobacterium cultures and make sure it is preservative-free. My preferred choice is Woolworths’ AYRSHIRE Full Cream Plain Yogurt.
There are many ways to prepare chia seeds and oats. The a.m. is my favourite. I trust the photos in the gallery below offer some inspiration (click n an image to enlarge it):
