Chia Seed Pudding (Serves 1)

You’ll Need:

  • 1 cup of almond milk (I use Silk Unsweetened Original)
  • 3-4 tablespoons of chia seeds (I used about 3.5 tablespoons to make mine thicker)
  • 1/2 tablespoon of honey (add this at the end, I added mine at the beginning and it didn’t mix too well and wound up at the bottom)
  • Fresh fruit to top (I like a good mix of berries)

How To:

  • Stir in chia seeds in with almond milk until well mixed.
  • Put in fridge overnight or at least 3 hours.
  • Add honey and fresh fruit when ready to eat.

What did I tell you? Super easy, healthy, and delicious!

Strawberry Muffins

Morning everyone! I just made this super simple strawberry muffins recipe this morning for breakfast, and it is delicious. The only tweak I made was using Almond Milk instead of regular milk, but otherwise it’s the same, and it is a delicious treat for a morning snack.


Here’s the information below:

Perfect Strawberry Muffins Recipe

  • PREP 
  • COOK 
  • TOTAL 

These light and airy strawberry muffins are very simple to make. We love adding a light spice to the batter with cinnamon and finely ground black pepper. The black pepper is a little unusual, but by adding just a small amount it lifts all the flavors in the muffins. Feel free to leave it out, but we highly recommend it.

Makes 12 muffins


MUFFINS1 1/2 cups (195 grams) all-purpose flour, we use Gold Medal

3/4 cup (150 grams) granulated sugar

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon finely ground black pepper

1/3 cup (80 ml) vegetable oil

1 large egg

1/3 to 1/2 cup (80 ml – 120 ml) milk, reduced fat or whole milk are best

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

6 ounces strawberries, hulled and diced (about 1 cup diced)

TOPPING1 tablespoon granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


Heat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line 12 standard-size muffin cups with paper liners.

Whisk flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, and the black pepper in a large bowl until well mixed.

Using a measuring jug that holds at least 1 cup, measure out the vegetable oil. Add the egg then fill the jug to the 1-cup line with milk (this should be 1/3 to a 1/2 cup of milk). Add 1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract and whisk until blended. Pour into the bowl with flour and stir with a fork until just combined. Do not over mix. (The muffin batter will be quite thick — see note below for more details). Stir in the strawberries.


In a small bowl, stir 1 tablespoon of sugar with a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla then set aside.

        • TO FINISH

Divide batter between the 12 muffin cups. (The batter will come close to the tops of the paper liners). Lightly sprinkle vanilla sugar topping over muffins.

Bake muffins until tops are golden brown, no longer wet and a toothpick inserted into the middle comes out with crumbs, not wet batter; 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.


Healthy Eggless Breakfasts

So the other day, my friend and I were talking on the phone, catching up on each other’s lives, and she asked me if I had any suggestions for healthy eggless breakfasts. While I gave her a few on the phone, it gave me an idea to put together some suggestions for my readers as well. We’re all fresh in the New Year, and may be looking for some healthy ways to switch up your breakfast routine. Enjoy!

  • Cream of Wheat- Put some fruit and cinnamon on top, and you have a healthy breakfast with protein, iron, and other good nutrients.
  • Protein Smoothie- my favorite is with Tone It Up vanilla protein, frozen fruits, spinach, and almond milk.
  • Yogurt parfaits- if you are lactose intolerant or vegan, there are plenty of alternative yogurt options out there that are delicious, and surprisingly full of protein. Add some granola and fruit, and enjoy.
  • Avocado toast- that’s right, a Millennial favorite had to make the list.
  • Breakfast toast- toast, cream cheese, a slice of meat (ham, salmon or turkey would be tasty), and cucumber slices. A bagel would work too.
  • Quinoa bowl with veggies. Add some yummy spices, plus some tomatoes, spinach, and cucumbers for a healthy, delicious meal.
  • Protein muffins- again, super easy to make, and you can use your favorite ingredients, there are so many recipes out there.
  • Breakfast bowl- hashbrowns, veggies, and some cheese (there are great dairy-free options, again if you need that), and this will taste delicious and fill you up. I like hashbrowns, tomatoes, zucchini, and spinach in mine.

It may seem like there aren’t a lot of breakfast options that don’t contain eggs, but there are plenty to choose from if you know where to look. Enjoy! 🙂
