Weekday breakfasts for me are rushed to say the least - After sorting out the kids I normally have about 2 minutes before I run out of the door. If you take time over breakfast, good for you - I'm jealous - and I certainly do when I have time on my side. When its not, I get organised and make this seriously quick bircher the night before.
I love to use chia seeds, which have found themselves in the health limelight in recent years. Packed with fibre, omegas, potassium, and magnesium, the superfood seeds are great for boosting energy, improving endurance, and even helping regulate digestion. If you haven't come across them before, they look a little bit like poppy seeds and come in a variety of colours: black, grey and white. You'll find them in most high street supermarkets beside the nuts and seeds. Chia were the food of choice for the Aztec warriors and a single tablespoon was said to keep them going for 24 hours. You can use them in smoothies, baking and sprinkle them over most things.
