We’ve been speaking a lot about healthy habits lately here at Tara Allen Health - what with the New Year and all. I can't think of anything more helpful than setting yourself up for success the night before. For me, this looks like making the kids' school lunch and snacks, setting out my workout clothes (I either train clients or myself very early every morning), and taking a look at my schedule for the next day so there are no surprises.
Another helpful trick - especially if your mornings are typically frantic - is to pre-make breakfast for whoever you're responsible for feeding in the AM. Some of my favorites that can be made ahead are overnight oats, veggie-egg cups, and this Coconut Cherry Chia Overnight Pudding recipe...
Coconut Cherry Chia Overnight Pudding
3 T Chia seeds
1 cup coconut milk (or another non-dairy milk of choice)
1 cup chopped cherries (frozen or fresh - your choice!)
1 T raw honey
Dash of pure vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1. Place all ingredients in a glass container and stir well.
2. Cover the container and place it in the refrigerator overnight.
3. When it's time to eat, place a serving in a bowl and garnish with an optional teaspoon of almond slivers, or another kind of nuts / seeds.
If you try this recipe (or any of my other recipes) and decide to post to social media, please tag me so I can see it!
