Question: I don’t have time to prepare a meal for breakfast every day. I’m busy, I have my hands full trying to get out the door and get to work. So what should I do for breakfast??

Answer: I’m all about preparing ahead of time. I recommend that my coaching clients set aside 30-60 minutes on the weekend to make 2 breakfast dishes that they can grab and go or heat & eat during the week. Then I recommend that they have 1-2 “oh crap” options – if they ran out of their premade option or they left the house without it or their dog at it all. And, of course, we talk about weekend strategies – things you can make on the days you have some more time to enjoy a delicious, fat loss friendly meal at home with your family or when you’re out for breakfast.

Make Ahead Grab & Go or Heat & Eat Options

Chia Pudding

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup brewed coffee (cooled)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp liquid stevia extract
  • 1 tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp cacao powder or unsweetened cocoa powder

Blend all ingredients in a blender or with an immersion blender. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours so the chia seeds soak up the moisture.
