Nutritarian Breakfast Pudding
This Chia Breakfast Pudding recipe comes from Dr. Fuhrman’s book, The End of Dieting (published with permission from HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers).
It’s a delicious Eat to Live oatmeal that makes for a perfect nutritarian breakfast. It’s also perfect for any plant-based diet that includes whole grains and is based around weight loss.
I’m really excited to share it with you today!
Ideally, you would make this dish the night before and store it in the fridge overnight so the chia can do its thing.
But, if you don’t have time for that, then you can assemble it and let it sit for a mere 10 minutes before eating. So easy!
- The main ingredients are rolled oats and whole chia seeds. Be sure to use gluten-free rolled oats if you are on a gluten-free diet.
- Plus, you will need non-dairy milk, blueberries, and raisins (I used currants instead).
- The recipe also calls for half of a vanilla bean which I find adds so much flavor. You can use the extract if you don’t have a bean.
You can really adapt this recipe to meet your needs…that’s one reason I love it so much (see my similar recipe for Overnight Protein Oats).
The result is a delicious and healthy breakfast pudding recipe that can serve as a breakfast or snack. It’s a whole foods recipe made for those on a nutritarian diet who can’t have added sugars.
Chia seeds are so amazing, I love their nutrition and texture.
I didn’t even use the banana that is called for (am I the only one who doesn’t care for the texture of sliced bananas?) and I found the pudding to be just sweet enough with the blueberries and currants.
It was simply delicious!
Refined sugars are not considered nutritarian, but date sugar is okay in moderation. You can also use date syrup or fresh chopped dates if you need more sweetness.
Yes! It is ideally made the night before, or up to 3 days in advance. It will stay fresh in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
This recipe is meant to be eaten uncooked or raw. If you prefer to use cooked oats, then cook them before adding them to the porridge.
