Chia Yogurt Power Bowls

September has been a busy month for us! I’m on a Med-Peds clinic rotation (and loving it!!) and finishing up my residency applications to go out next week. This weekend we have some of our very best friends staying with us and we have a full day planned – book fairs, disc golf, and indie movie matinees! We needed something filling and delicious for breakfast that wouldn’t weigh us down or take too long to prepare. Voila, these chia yogurt power bowls. This breakfast is chock full of protein, fiber, and vitamins as well as being beautiful and super tasty. 🙂DSC_4027

My husband and I have made these pretty frequently since we started our health kick. They are quick and easy breakfast to have before heading to work, especially since I can make a big batch and keep it in the fridge all week. We like to use plain yogurt and sweeten to taste with honey or chopped dates (after sitting overnight, the dates kind of melt into the yogurt!) We also make our own granola (recipe to come!) and keep it in a big jar on the counter for adding to breakfast bowls or frozen yogurt. Use whatever toppings you like! Other berries, a stir of almond butter, or a dash of cinnamon would be delicious!
