Snacks? And healthy? What??

Every day, I aim to eat food that is nutritious and healthy, this also includes the snacks I eat. Replacing my snacks with healthier options has boosted my energy and aided towards my general health.

It’s important that you know how your body works. For example, knowing when you will get that energy slump throughout the day, is a sign that you need to eat a light snack; that is full of nutrition, to help raise your blood sugar levels before it happens.

For me, it’s 4 pm, I have a light snack around 2.30-3pm.

My thoughts on yoga wear

I have forever been searching yoga clothes that are not linked to sweatshops and not made using organic fabrics.

Since I practice yoga a lot, especially Bikram yoga, I need clothes that are easy to wear quality and comfortable.

After carrying out some research, I have come across some brands that meet my ethical values.

The progress

I am now far closer to my goal, of launching an Animal-Friendly handbag range. I am not denying; that It has been a roller coaster journey, with many ups and downs.

Who said, launching your own business is easy? The long hours; late nights and early mornings working non-stop to make ends meet. Knocking on every door to get your product out there, making connections and building relations with people and businesses.

My breakfast routine and more

Hey, guys this week’s blog is all about my morning breakfast routine. I am not only Vegan but also Gluten Intolerant as well. So, today I will give you information on one of my morning breakfast routine.

At least 3 times a week I have chia seed pudding. The chia seed pudding is very nutritional and gives me the right amount of vitamins and energy, that I may need throughout the day.

By adding chia seeds in my breakfast, I am instantly adding nutritional benefits: such as fiber and other Vitamins such as B3 (Niacin), Potassium, Vitamin B1 (Thiamine) and Vitamin B2 and fiber.

I also add nuts, as they are full of protein. By adding nuts in my breakfast I always get a rush of energy, which overcomes my body feeling tired and fatigue.

Using coconut milk in my breakfasts adds a balance to my nutritional intake. Coconut milk is highly nutritious and rich in fiber, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous.

Cacao powder is another great ingredient to include in your diet. There are many ways you can include cocoa powder in your diets, this can be via smoothies or even coffee.

When I want to make my breakfast more nutritional and exciting, I add cocoa powder. Cacao powder contains Magnesium, and other essential minerals including; calcium, sulfur, zinc, iron, copper, Potassium, and manganese.

My breakfast may not seem very exciting, but it gives me a lot of energy throughout the day, my stomach stays flat and I also feel really great too.

And due to a vegan diet, I can miss out on getting a lot of essential vitamins and minerals, such as protein from meat. Protein is an important part of our health and diet; hence, it is vital that we find a way to include protein in our diet.

Importance of protein

Our body uses protein to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals. Protein is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood this is why I add nuts in my breakfast.

How to prepare the CHIA SEED PUDDING

I take 1 tablespoon of chia seeds and handful of broken mixed nuts, I then add cacao powder and coconut milk in my bowl. I mix the ingredients together and wait until they settle down.

By preparing my breakfast at night, the coconut milk has enough time to softens the nuts overnight, and as, a result they are easier and softer to eat.

The ingredients are listed below

The final ingredient is the fruit dates. Dates add sweetness to the pudding and are also rich in vitamins, minerals and fiber too.

So here is my Chia seed pudding recipe. I hope you have all enjoyed reading this, please like share, and follow. And watch this space for more exciting breakfast recipes.
