A rich natural plant-based source of omega-3 fatty acids, chia seeds make for a convenient and nutritious breakfast/ snack. Simply pour soy milk/ almond milk over and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. The chia seeds plump up and turn into a creamy, pudding-like consistency that becomes the perfect base for fruits (sliced bananas, berries etc.), nuts or seeds. Want to jazz up your chia pudding? Try adding spices like cinnamon powder, vanilla essence, or check out the numerous recipes online. Cinnamon-flavoured chia pudding with bananas is one of my favourite combinations.
The concept of Kombucha (fermented tea) might sound strange, but GT’s Synergy range tastes like fruity soda with fizziness created by the bacteria culture. Like all fermented foods, kombucha does wonders for digestion and infusing them with fruit juices makes for a pleasant drink. GT offers many flavours and all the ingredients are raw and organic (http://synergydrinks.com/index.php). Kombucha will be a nice alternative when I’m tired of my usual teas.
