Apple Chia Seed Pudding Breakfast
If you don’t know what chia seed pudding is, you are definitely going to read this! Chia seed pudding is simply chia seeds that are thickened with a milk of choice until they’ve reached a pudding like consistency. It’s an easy and healthy breakfast option that is simple to make. I love chia seeds because of their nutritional value, and I really enjoy the texture. So it’s a no brainer to use them to make Apple Chia Seed Pudding. And now that Fall is in the air (and the farm is stocking up with my favorite Fall produce), I wanted to mix in something warm, like warm apple pie filling infused with just the right amount of cinnamon. You with me on this one? Packed with nutrients, delicious, and filling.

Are chia seeds paleo and healthy?
Yes! Chia seeds are a Paleo-friendly and nutrient-dense. They’re easy to digest and can even aid in digestion by helping this move along! They are also contain omega-3’s which means they’re not only good for your body but also good for your brain!
Benefits of Chia Seeds:
Loaded with iron, calcium, omega 3′s, magnesium, and antioxidants
Improves health of hair, skin, and nails
2 tbsp chia seeds (above serving) contains 11g fiber and 4g protein
How long will this apple chia pudding last?
Chia pudding will last for a few days in the refrigerator, up to about 5. It’s preferable to store the apple filling separate from the chia seed pudding, but it will still hold up alright if you’d like to completely make this ahead of time.
The recipe can easily be halved, double or tripled for an easy grab and go breakfast or healthy snack.

Lemon Curd and Blueberry Compote Breakfast Parfaits
Heat all blueberry compote ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Let simmer for 10-15 minutes until most of the liquid has evaporated. Taste and adjust lemon and sweetener as desired. Once done, take off heat and let cool before pouring into a small mixing bowl.
Divide the lemon curd, blueberry compote, chia pudding and Greek yogurt (if using!) among 8 4-ounce containers or 4 8-ounce containers. Top with granola and lemon zest and either eat right away or store in the fridge for later!
*Save the rest of the lemon curd for more delicious treats! We love using it in our lemon bars, top it with whipped coconut cream and berries for a fun no-bake treat, or even as a topping on our favorite Fluffy Paleo Pancakes!
*This should keep refrigerated for 1-2 weeks!

Bananas Foster Chia Pudding
Life sometimes gets busy. Right now, life for me is super super busy. Have you noticed I’ve been blogging less the past few weeks? Don’t worry, it’s about to pick back up! I’m finishing up the school year with my students, then off to embark on my new journey (you can read about that here). So, with the twenty million tasks I’ve set for myself in these busy few weeks, I’ve also set myself on a mission to make some delicious nutrient-packed snacks and breakfasts that have a fun twist to them
Now, I’m currently all about exploring egg-free breakfasts. Not because I’m not eating eggs, but because sometimes you just want to switch things up a bit!
This chia pudding is packed with omegas, nutrients, and potassium, while also throwing in the delicious flavors of decadent bananas foster. I seriously love bananas foster. All this is missing is the vanilla ice cream, but I promise you won’t miss it! When we were in Jamaica one of the desserts was a bananas foster bar which sparked my current obsession. It’s just so good!
