Hey folks! I know it’s been a while, I’ve been uber busy with school and settling into the new university life. Like the work itself, it’s been a challenge adjusting my dietary preferences to the meal options here at school. I’m super eager to write new posts about living a healthy lifestyle in university *when I have the chance of course. In the meantime, here’s a recipe for a really quick, easy, filling and healthy breakfast for you busy people! This recipe is courtesy of my naturopath Christina Carreau N.D.

Be sure to make this recipe the night before so that when you’re super rushed, you’ve got a nutritious breakfast in hand!

-3 tbsp of chia seeds (white or black or a combo of both)

-1 ripe banana

-6 tbsp of hemp hearts

-1 cup almond or coconut milk blend (unsweetened)

-1/2 tsp cinnamon

-Toppings (optional): fresh berries or peach slices, nut pieces, ground flax, goji berries, raw seeds, shredded coconut, cacao nibs or anything you love!


Mash the banana or puree until smooth and stir in a bowl or mason jar with the chia seeds, hemp hearts, almond milk and cinnamon. Cover and let sit in the fridge over night.

In the morning, puree the mixture only if you prefer a smoother “pudding” consistency and then add any of your favourite toppings. Enjoy right away or take to go, this breakfast will fill you up all morning.
