This New Year, like many of you, I vowed to rededicate myself to a healthy lifestyle. The holiday season always throws me for a little loop, and to be honest, even before that I wasn’t quite back to my normal self since having P the PREVIOUS holiday season… So now it’s time, time to get back to the best version of me. This means hitting the gym 3 times a week and sticking with a healthy diet.
In many meals, “healthy” means cutting out grains altogether. But in some cases, I’m okay with adding in grains as long as they are whole grains that contain necessary nutrients such as protein, fiber, B vitamins and antioxidants.
So…when I make this otherwise Paleo Apple-Cinnamon Chia Seed Pudding and want a little added crunch to top it off, my go-to palate pleaser for a whole-grain, nutrient rich crunch, is Grape-Nuts® cereal. And… lucky for you, if you want to try out the breakfast recipe below, I have a dollar off coupon for a variety of different Post® cereals, including Grape-Nuts®, you could use to top it off. So don’t miss out, and if you end up purchasing Grape-Nuts®, do give the recipe below a try 😉

Warming the chia pudding and softening the apples is not necessary. If you do not want warm chia seed pudding, simply add the milk to bowl of chia seeds. Stir until the chia seeds have absorbed the milk (about 3 to 5 minutes). Then top with Grape-Nuts®, unsoftened apples, and cinnamon.
