The Battle of the Milks

The interest in non-dairy milks has sky rocketed. This is for a variety of reasons. Choosing the best milk or plant-based milk can be challenging, with the wide variety of options on the market.

Overnight Chocolate Chia Pudding

Overnight chia puddings offer a hearty breakfast with optimal convenience. Try this delicious chocolate version! Chia seeds are rich in omega 3 fatty acids and calcium – this recipe offers a total of 507 mg of calcium, which is 50% of your daily value if you are a female or male between the ages of 19 and 50. I like to enjoy my chia seed puddings for breakfast in my backyard while catching up on news and social media happenings 🙂

Roasted Vegetable Farro Salad

Have you tried farro before? It’s one of the oldest grains in existence! It has a higher fiber and protein content than common wheat. In one-quarter cup serving of uncooked farro provides 200 calories’ worth of energy, along with 7 g each of fibre and protein, as well as 10% of your daily iron needs.  In this salad, I’ve combined farro with lentils along with heaps of roasted vegetables. Now you’ve got a nutty and chewy filling entree salad. Enjoy!
