I was recently invited to it by my sister-in-law, who is also one of my bridesmaids and has been helping me tons with ideas for the wedding, Thanks Katie! She thought Pintrist would be a great spot to keep all of my wedding ideas and dreams from things I see at online wedding websites. She has sent me many helpful links to DIY sites and example weddings; this is what her, and now I, refer to as "wedding porn." Hehe. Other than wedding stuff, Pintrist has been a great spot for me to keep track of a bunch of recipes I've tried and loved, or recipes I want to try. To find my boards on Pintrist go to this link and follow me if you want to keep track of what I'm loving in the nutritarian (or wedding idea) world.
Chia Berry Oatmeal
Ingredients: (serves 1)
1 T chia seeds
1/3 c almond milk
1/2 c oats
2/3 c water
1 c berries
Directions: The night before serving, or at least 1 hour before serving, mix the chia seeds into the almond milk in a small glass and let sit. In a good sized, microwaveable bowl, layer 1/2 c of the berries on the bottom, then the dry oats, and then add the water. In a microwave, microwave on high for three minutes. Carefully remove from the microwave and stir. The oatmeal should be a lovely (depending on your type of berry)-color. Pour the almond milk and chia seed mix on top and a couple more fresh berries. Enjoy!
Amy's notes: I microwaved my oatmeal, but this recipe could be easily done on the stovetop. For my oatmeal this morning I used just blackberries, but any sort of berry would work great. It would be even better with a variety of berries in one oatmeal if you have the fruit available! My favorites would be: raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, strawberries, seeded cherries, or even pomegranates!
Thankfully I am a person that enjoys sweet breakfasts more than salty/savory, because I have no idea how to translate an omlette or other egg dish into a nutritarian option. My favorite breakfasts (on weekends and for more of a brunch), used to be eggs benedict with hashbrowns. My favorite thing about eggs benedict would have to be the hollandaise sauce. I think I will work on making this into a better nutritarian option. I believe I have found my challenge for the weekend! :)
What types of breakfasts do you enjoy? Do you have any experience with egg-like nutritarian breakfasts?
