  • Chia seeds

  • Dark chocolate

  • Berries


You can make eggs with toast and avocado. You can use a whole or multigrain toast. A chia seed parfait can be made with walnuts and yogurt. Indulge yourself and add some chocolate for sweetness…



For a little sweetness - add berries, yogurt, chocolate and chia seeds in a container and soak overnight in a fridge. Voila! You have a grab and go treat.
