Eating healthy is an ongoing and tedious journey for me. I may have a few spurts of indulging leafy greens, luscious fruits and chugging ample amounts of water; however, there are also those times where I can down an entire serving of an 8-piece chicken wing combo, with no regrets. Since the start of 2021, I’ve been more conscious about what I put into my body while also trying to be more creative with the types of foods I incorporate as well.
With a set 30-minute workout routine (about three to four times a week), one meal that I simply cannot skimp on is my post-workout delicacy. My post-workout meal has to be filling, nutritious and tasty. One of my go-to dishes is my chia yogurt power bowl. This little number is loaded with antioxidants, fiber, potassium and a significant dose of vitamin C – and is beyond scrumptious! Keep reading to get into the full recipe below:
- 1 whole banana
- 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
- 2-3 strawberries
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
- chia seeds
- 1 bowl
- a cutting board
- a knife
1) Wash your hands and all of the listed fruits (bananas, blueberries and strawberries). Dry them a bit and place them near your cutting board.
2) Place the banana onto the cutting board. Cut the banana into two halves, right down the center, vertically. Place each half into the bowl and situate them parallel to each other.
3) Scoop one cup of greek yogurt and distribute it between the banana halves.
4) Sprinkle your blueberries on top of the greek yogurt.
5) Place your strawberries on the cutting board, cut off the top leafy portions and throw them away. In addition, proceed to cut the remaining strawberries into small wedges. After cutting strawberries, sprinkle them on top of the greek yogurt and blueberries.
6) Take a pinch of chia seeds and scatter them across the fruit and yogurt mixture.
7) Finish up the recipe by drizzling a bit of honey over the chia seeds, blueberries, bananas and the strawberries.
8) Grab a spoon, dig in and enjoy!
