Super Easy Breakfast or Snack Idea! 

Coconut Chia Yogurt!  
 This CREAMY yummy dish is made in minutes the night before & stored in the fridge.  Breakfast is READY when you wake up or finish your morning workout!

Ingredients:

1 can organic full fat coconut milk

Organic chia seeds (1/4 cup for every 1 cup of coconut milk)

Organic cinnamon

Organic maple syrup

Measure out 1 cup coconut milk to 1/4 cup chia seeds.  I believe there was about 3/4 cup of milk left so add that and a tad under 1/4 cup of seeds.  So basically you are just under 2 cups of liquid & 1/2 cup seeds.  Add lots of cinnamon & a dash or two of maple syrup.  Whisk in a glass container, put a lid on & shake.  Put in fridge overnight.  Dish into a bowl & add 1 serving of berries.  There will be leftovers for a mid morning / afternoon snacks or tomorrow’s breakfast.  ENJOY!

When you don’t want a salad for lunch… 

It’s not often that I want a salad for lunch.  To be honest I only love a salad when someone else makes it for me (why is someone else’s always better??) so I sneak in veggies wherever I can!   This is Charly and I’s favorite lunch – salmon mix that we spread onto corn thins, rice cakes, lettuce boats or paleo wraps.  The below pic is today’s version but sometimes I add onion, English peas or even olives.  Last night my hubs bought a huge amount of fresh salmon at the fish market so we were spoiled with amazing leftovers but typically we use wild canned salmon.

 
This recipe makes enough for 2 days of lunches for Charly and I.
1 can wild salmon or fresh

Bubbles dill pickles (I was out today)

3-4 celery stalks

Organic stone ground or Dijon mustard 

1 avocado 

Salt & pepper 

Chop everything up & mix into a bowl.  Mash in the avocado & season as desired. Eat on corn thins, lettuce wraps, rice cakes or paleo wraps.  

This high protein, clean, GREEN 💚 lunch will leave you feeling satisfied & happy!

Enough Water? 💦💦💦

This week lets focus on the simple task of drinking enough WATER. You should consume half of your weight in ounces. So at 120lbs I need to drink 60 ounces per day. How many ounces does your body need? Get out your BPA FREE bottles (because they have a measurement on them) and achieve this today! 💦💦💦
Happy HEALTHY Monday! 💪🏽💪🏽
