Chocolate Avocado Chia Pudding with Berries and SpecialK

Some says that breakfast is the most important meal in a day.. Do you agree? I do.. Without proper, nutritious, healthy breakfast to start my day, often that could ruin my entire day as I felt sluggish, lack of energy, craving for unnecessary (and unhealthy!) food.. So I always make sure my body has the proper food to function..

And then I notice my chia seed in the pantry.. been there for like ages.. So decided to make chia pudding with it.. Ah, and my aunt gave me few avo, so that will make a great combo, especially with some raw cacao!

This is a very very simple recipe. All you need is 1 whole avocado, 1/2 cup of milk, 3tbs chia seed, 2tbs raw cacao powder.

Then blend them in a blender until smooth. Scoop it out, topped with some berries, cereal of your choice, or even some nuts and voila! There you are, your healthy nutritious brekky, packed with super foods and super delicious too! Hope you enjoy this as much as I do! Cheers

Note: you can buy chia seed and raw cacao powder in health food store.

Homemade dinner – Fresh Seafood Fettucine

I must say, that I don’t cook often.. But when I do, one thing I love to cook is pasta dishes. Why? Coz it’s simple, elegant yet tastes just so good! Pair that with some grilled fresh seafood? Yeah, that made my night! Oh, and for dessert? Avocado juice with chocolate ice cream! Recipes below..

Easy right? Now let’s move on to the main dish: Seafood fettucine. For this dish, you can use other types of pasta, depends which you prefer.. Since I didn’t have time to prepare fresh pasta sauce, I used what’s available in my fridge: store-bought pesto sauce, which goes with the dish nicely.

Recipes & Ingredients:

Pasta: Cook pasta of preference to al dente, stir in pesto sauce, seasoned with black pepper and chilli flakes to taste.

Salmon: Seasoned Salmon fillet with black pepper, salt & a dash of lemon juice. Let it sit for 5 minutes (prepare and pre-heat pan in the meantime). Pan-fry salmon fillet for 5 minutes each side (or more if you’d like your salmon all cooked through). Continue reading
