30 Days of Christmas: Superfood Breakfast



I had originally planned to bake some cookies today but it's hard to dish out copious amounts of butter and sugar when it's the 4th of January and everyone around you is talking of new year resolutions. But if you are still finding it hard to get over the habit of eating sweet treats, here's a happy medium. It's an oatmeal breakfast, but one you can make the night before and it's full of all kinds of superfoods.

The night before, measure out 1/4 cup of oats. Put them in a pan over medium heat and stir until they get toasted and lightly browned. Let cool, then mix the oats in a bowl with 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1/2 cup yogurt and 1 tsp honey. Leave the mix in the fridge overnight. The next morning, take a pretty glass. Start with a layer of oats-chia mix and add a layer of pomegranate seeds. Repeat the layers and top with slivered almonds.
