Nothing gets me out of bed faster than the thought of a ready-made breakfast that’s been waiting for me in the fridge the night before. Now imagine the breakfast was healthy and features the popular superfood chia seeds.
Here’s an update about my whole Germany situation. I know I’m going to sound like an idiot writing all this, because I was so depressed and worried out of my mind on my last post, and you’ll find it hard to believe but honestly, everything seems to be working out now. The bank sent me an email on Tuesday saying my account has been opened successfully. I went to transfer some money on that same day, and the very next day I received a balance confirmation. You see, I didn’t plan for everything to happen so quickly, so initially my visa appointment wasn’t for a few weeks. I did manage to change my appointment date yesterday, and now it’s set for today. I am so crazy nervous and excited, I barely slept. Wish me good luck 🙂
Back to the post (because I really regret not having made some chia pudding last night), chia seeds have become SO popular the last few years and are consumed by health conscious people all over the world. And honestly, when you tell people you had chia pudding for breakfast, they’ll think you’re super duper healthy, and that’s a cool thing.
Anyways, chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber, antioxidants, omega fatty acids and minerals. When soaked in liquid, these seeds expand to more than 4 times their original size and have this gooey gelatinous texture.
And that’s how to make chia pudding! I simply soak the chia seeds overnight in some plant-based milk with all the other ingredients, fast forward 9 hours (I sleep a lot), wake up in the morning and enjoy my very own chia pudding with fruits. I like having some sliced strawberries and crunchy homemade granola with this basic vanilla chia pudding. Continue reading
Wake up to this pink bowl of healthy goodness. Made in 5 minutes and with 5 ingredients, this makes an amazing go-to breakfast during a busy week.
Anyone who has been following me on Instagram for a while knows that my absolute favorite color is pink! The girly, bright, fresh kind of pink that makes me happy to look at.
Well, I’ve been having such a bad time recently. There’s been so many problems with opening a bank account in Germany, which is a requirement when asking for a student visa to go study there. I’ve been feeling down, angry, crying a lot at night, and just so so frustrated. That’s why I haven’t been cooking, posting, or blogging very much. These things used to calm me down and make me feel better, but it’s been so hard for me the last few days. I don’t have any new ideas, and I don’t feel motivated to get creative like I normally do. It’s been really difficult for me. I am so scared that I won’t be able to go study what I’ve always wanted to 🙁
I’m not going to lie, I made this breakfast a long while ago, but haven’t been able to bring myself to write a blog post about it. Anyways, I dragged myself out of bed today. I know it’s wrong to let something I can’t control bring me down like this, so I thought I would try blogging again to get my mind off things. I told you pink made me happy, so here’s a blog post dedicated to a breakfast that resembles how I want the future to be: bright, simple and good.
Crisp on the outside, feathery light on the inside and topped with warm, delicious blueberry compote, these waffles will be your new favorite breakfast to have on Sunday mornings.
What would you rather have on a lazy Sunday morning: pancakes or waffles?
Impossible question, I know.
Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a stack of fluffy pancakes with fruits every now and then, like these vanilla pancakes with roasted strawberries (hmm yummy!), but I personally prefer waffles on lazy mornings because they’re much quicker to whip up. You just need to preheat your waffle iron, make a simple batter in the meantime and you’re only a few minutes from having the best Sunday morning breakfast ever.
No, scratch that.
Make it even better by preparing a simple berry compote to top your waffles. Continue reading
This simple, basic oatmeal recipe makes the perfect satisfying breakfast.
Oatmeal. This word probably makes a few of you squirm, but the truth is (no matter how many times you’ve heard this already), it’s super duper good for you! Oats have a great amount of protein, fiber, minerals and vitamins. Having oats for breakfast will keep you feeling full and satisfied until lunch. It really did the trick for me on school mornings. I would have a huge bowl of oatmeal with my favorite fruits for breakfast very often; that way my stomach wouldn’t make loud (ugly) noises in class.
I have a bowl oatmeal really often in winter in Thailand. Now here’s a thing about me, I get cold really easily. Winter in Thailand doesn’t get cooler than 15 degrees Celsius and I already feel like freezing. I wear about 1000 layers of clothing while all my friends walk around in a t-shirt.
How am I going to survive in Germany?
I am 100% counting on warm oatmeal and a cup of tea. Continue reading
