Vanilla Chai Breakfast Bowl

Chai Masala is a blend of several different spices, all of which have anti-inflammatory properties. Meaning they can help calm the body from things like stress, alcohol, lack of sleep and sugar. Chai is made up of a combination of: cardamon, black pepper, all spice, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg. Cinnamon, ginger, and black pepper all aid in digestion and can help with nausea. Personally, I like to customize my chai blend to be a little heavier on clove, cinnamon, and ginger, but that’s just personal preference. I only use 1/8th of a teaspoon in the recipe because a little goes a long way!

When I think of chai,  I also think of nuttier flavors, so I topped this bowl off with almonds, chia and flax seeds. I always like to keep a variety of nuts and seeds on hand because they are great sources of Omega 3’s. Fun fact: Chia’s omega 3 fatty acid content is gram for gram higher than salmon.  Aside from omega 3’s, chia is high in other micronutrients like calcium, potassium, magnesium, which are also important..

 I love to cook but some mornings I’m just not feelin’ it and need something quick with no hassle and virtually no clean up. Most of the time I throw together a yogurt bowl because its quick, easy, and healthy. Literally. Just put it in a bowl and call it a day.

 After my workouts, I would much rather sit down and eat a meal than scarf down a protein shake… With that being said, in this recipe I added a scoop of protein powder to plain greek yogurt. That way I still get all of the protein I need after a long workout and it adds flavor to my yogurt.

If you’re curious about the “macros” of this bowl they are as follows:

     Calories: 415,  30 g Carbs, 15g Fat, 40g Protein

I don’t count macronutrients, but I am mindful of the content and the ingredient list of the things I eat.
