My patients always ask me, “Karen, What do YOU eat for breakfast? I am so sick of eggs!” When I am looking for something that is going to keep me full and energized, I turn to my favorite cereal- Qi’a.
I like to take two tablespoons of the cereal and mix it with a 1/2 cup of almond milk.  In the winter, I give it a quick blast in the microwave for 30 seconds to make a hot breakfast but you can also enjoy it cold.  If you are choosing not to use the microwave, let the cereal sit for a few minutes to absorb the cereal’s chia seeds.
Qi’a cereal can also be added to some Greek yogurt to give it an extra punch of fiber and protein!  Always remember to pay attention to the serving size.  Enjoy!
