Breakfast: Simple chia pudding

Written by Jiny on .

Eating chia pudding for breakfast is something I’ve done regularly since this New Year. My wish was to eat more healthier than I did before, and I feel I’m keeping it up pretty good. And that’s why I’ve included chia seeds, usually making a pudding and eating this in different ways, and I really love it :)

Unfortunately I had to stay at home today due to migraine, and I was not able to cook. Fortunately I’ve made some chia pudding, so I decided to eat this as a "late" breakfast, topped with some kiwi and dark mint chocolate. I’m not sure, but I actually felt better hereafter, but still not that well to cook anything. Luckily and surprisingly my parents came with food :D

I tried taking some pictures of my beautiful chia food today :)

Healthiness: Pinky Nicecream

Written by Jiny on .

 

pinknice4This weekend I got my bestie on a visit, so I decided to give this love a pleasant surprise, by serving pancakes for breakfast. I wanted it to be a healthy breakfast, so I therefore decided to make some nicecream to eat the pancakes with. I think making nicecream has become a huge trend at the moment, so I therefore wanted to try this too – everything healthy and vegetarian is a sure winner here ;)

The result came out very well, and was so beautiful. Even so yummy too! We both loved it, and my bestie even ate more of it than I did! ;) The one I made was a pink nana icecream/nicecream, and here’s the recipe:

Servings: 2

Ingredients:

  • 2 large bananas
  • 5-8 frozen raspberries
  • 2 teaspoons of almond milk (unsweetened as well as sweetened)

Instructions:

The night before:

                       pinknice01

Cut the bananas into cubes and freeze them. Also freeze some raspberries too (I used 8 of these).

In the morning:

Put the frozen bananas, raspberries and almond milk in a blender, and blend it all together on high speed. Make sure everything mixes well, and becomes smooth.

Voilá – the nicecream is ready! ;)

Serve with pancakes [as I did].

Note: this yummy nicecream can be served with anything else – let it be other unblended fruit, oats, chiaseed/chia pudding etc., or be eaten “clean”. 

Bon appétit! ;)

Overnight chia oat pudding

Experimenting with food is something I love to do. You get so many different tastes and very lovely dishes out of this way of cooking. Honestly, cooking was definitely not my cup of tea until I turned 22-23 years old. Really don’t know why, but I thought it was difficult and very boring to live alone, and be cooking only for myself. But later, I changed a lot, and cooking became a kind of hobby to me. Many people ask me, if I have any difficulties in being a vegetarian, as they think it’s limited how delicious food vegetarians can make. But they’re wrong! There are many ways of getting nutritious, and at the same time lovely food being a vegetarian (or vegan). Experimenting with the flavours is the way ;)

Today I tried something new with the chia pudding for breakfast; I’ve earlier shared a recipe for a simple pudding. I actually used this pudding today, but added some other healthy things into it, and made this delicious chia-oat pudding instead ;)

Yummy cocoa chia pudding

Written by Jiny on .

My attempt to a healthier lifestyle has now included breakfasts too. Since 2014 I actually didn’t eat breakfast everyday, as I used to have a kind of “fasting” to keep myself away from eating too much of calories. I have had several ways of controlling myself from eating too much calories, which included an “8-hour” diet for 3 months, and afterwards a 4-months “no sugar”-period, and later a “5 day morning-fasting” period for a year. I felt this actually helped me a lot, and I didn’t gain weight. Beside these kind of diets I also went to fitness, but unfortunately I haven’t trained the past few months due to mental and physical health issues. BUT since the beginning of 2016 I decided to go another way: eat normal instead of controlling myself from not eating on specific times or specific items ;)

 

So why did I chose not to continue my diets?

I have 2 major reasons for this:

1. I am a vegetarian (almost vegan). This means I don’t actually eat meat or fish, so almost everything I eat is actually “clean products” – I believe that clean-eating means no animal; my body is not any graveyard! ;)

2. I don’t drink any kind of alcohol – so no unhealthy calories from here.

All in all I actually don’t have an unhealthy lifestyle, and my sugar intake is low-normal (I think it’s okay to get some sugar here and there when I don’t get any of those 2 things mentioned above). So why should I control myself like a psycho? :P

As I’ve chosen to eat breakfast again, I’ve also started on experimenting with these breakfast items many of us eat. Let it be oats, bread, chia seeds or anything else. Why not make it funnier? ;)

Recently I tried out making chia pudding with cocoa. This was a great success, and even my parents loved it. So therefore I’ve decided to share the recipe with you guys :)chocochia11

Servings: 4

Prep time: 5 mins

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons of chia seeds
  • 5 dates (Medjool if you have)
  • ¾ cup of milk (rice, almond, soy or dairy, anything can be used) – If you want a thicker pudding add a ½ cup instead
  • Vanilla from  2 vanilla pods
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder (if you like, you can add 2 tbsp.)

Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender, and blend until the pudding is perfectly thickened and smooth. Serve with toppings of free choice. Here, I added some banana on the tops, and I love it ;)

Note: This pudding can be eaten at any time :)
