Every morning I am in awe of the fact that we all get dressed in respectable clothes and uniforms (clean I might add) and usually on time for school, work and nursery. In fact now that I work from home, I am wondering how I ever managed to commute into London on time for work whist having Luc going to nursery. To be fair having 2 kids presents a few more challenges than looking after just the one. And if I had to do it again, I would manage somehow. However preparing my breakfast the night before helps every time.
I really need to be careful about my breakfast. If I have too much carbs, you can be sure that by 10 am I will be eating the entire content of my house (so easy when you work from home as well). So I am trying hard to look after my blood sugar straight from the start of the day. There are probably two separate recipes in one post. Use them separately or together, it would in my case depend on what I have in my fridge that day. I made this recipe a while ago and fresh blueberries are not so much in season right now, so I would either use frozen blueberries.

Chai seed pudding
- 1/4 cup dairy free milk I like hemp milk
- 1/4 cup unsweetened dairy free yoghurt
- 2 tsp brown rice sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp chia seed
To make the granola

To make the chia seed pudding
- Add all ingredients except chia seeds to a medium bowl and whisk vigorously to combine. Add chia seeds and whisk to combine.
- Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. You want pudding-like consistency in the morning.
- In the morning, give the pudding a good whisk to evenly distribute chia seeds that have settled on the bottom.
