Greek Yogurt, Grape, Chia Breakfast

Amy:

This was such a yummy breakfast I had to take a picture of it.  It’s inspired off of an Ambrosia Salad….sort of….

Greek yogurt is really high in protein but low in fat so it’s a great way to start off your morning and keep you fuller longer.  The chia seeds are native to Central America and Mexico, cultivated by the Aztecs.  I read about it in a book called Born to Run where a native tribe in Mexico makes a drink from chia seeds and water for a energy boosting beverage.  It’s used similarly to flaxseed – it’s high in fibre and omega 3 (heart healthy fats) and unlike flaxseed, high in protein and doesn’t need to be ground to be digested by our body.

Ingredients:

Grapes ~3/4 cup

3 tbsp greek yogurt

1 tbsp chia seeds

Drizzle of maple syrup

Stir together and enjoy!
