15 May Turmeric Chia Breakfast Bowl
This Turmeric Chia Breakfast bowl is a wonderful morning breakfast that can be prepared warm or cold.
The chia herbal bowl is rich with fiber and essential fatty acids as well as adaptogenic herbs (ashwaganda and maca) that help nourish, tonify and regulate the adrenal glands (organs that regulate our cortisol release and response to stress). To learn more about adaptogens, the article, “How Adaptogens Can Help You Cope With Life” covers how our most amazing adrenal glands work miracles everyday by enabling us to meet urban living responsibilities and demands.
Turmeric, as many of you are aware, is a potent anti-inflammatory herb with strong antioxidant properties. With the addition of the hormone balancing effects of ashwaganda and maca, this breakfast bowl has quickly become one of my go-to foods for PMS.
Wishing everyone a peaceful, joyful May!
¼ cup chia seeds
1 ½ Tbsp almond butter
½ cup cauliflower
1 cup coconut cream or 1 cup unsweetened vanilla cashew milk
1 capsule Adrenal Forte or ½ tsp ashwaganda + 1 tsp maca
1 tsp turmeric
For a special visual treat, sprinkle lavender flowers on top along with shavings of coconut flakes and a few frozen blueberries. Remember to add a special flower of your choice!
Blend all ingredients until smooth then transfer into a saucepan and heat on low until thick and creamy. You could also have this cold if you prefer, just use frozen cauliflower and frozen banana instead.
