Low carb hot chia-collagen bowl
When I am craving an egg free breakfast on a cold NYC day, I have found this to be my new staple! Plus it is loaded with nutrients that help ease PMS symptoms during the luteal phase!
Ingredients for bowl:
1 cup coconut milk
1/4- 1/2 cup chia seeds
1-2 TBSP flaxseed meal (added fiber and omega 3 which helps to ease menstrual cramps)
1 TBSP shredded coconut flakes
1 TBSP coconut oil
1 1/2 TBSP Dr. Josh Axe Collagen Protein Powder (no flavor at all- good for skin and metabolism and creates a creamy and fluffy texture)
1/2 TSP Vanilla
1 pinch of organic coconut sugar or Stevia
1 TBSP Cocoa Powder (optional- but I wanted the added magnesium to curb PMS cravings and I just love the bitter nutty flavor it adds)
Slivered toasted almonds - this provides Vitamin E which can help flush out excess estrogen, helping with breast tenderness!
Cinnamon- helps boost metabolism
1) Throw all ingredients (except toppings) in a small sauce pot and heat on medium until desired texture is reached
2) Add toppings and enjoy!
