Starting the day out with homemade Matcha Chai Latte made with non dairy milk and a variety of spices will greatly increase the chances that it will be a great day. Making your own chai means that you can treat yourself whenever you need to, and it won’t be loaded with preservatives and sugar. Vegan, gluten free and dairy free.
Serve with Pumpkin Cranberry Bread.
NOTE: Make sure that you blend your ingredients in the blender BEFORE your latte. DO NOT put hot ingredients in a Nutribullet.
Most who strive for a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle inevitably cook for, or entertain friends or family who don’t follow that diet. I don’t cook meat, but found these awesome tasting gluten free salmon patties at Costco, and since then, no other measures up. I always make a salad with the salmon, and add a variety of ingredients to up the nutritional value. This day, I added kale, leeks, pine nuts and these amazing glazed beets. No other dressing was even necessary.
I whipped this breakfast bowl up in about 10 minutes. By the time I got finished with the photos however, it was all cold. I popped it into the toaster oven, and….the chocolate melted! I have never combined oatmeal, berries and chocolate, but you must try adding just a few nibs. With the protein, fiber, antioxidants and vitamins that the other ingredients bring to the table, there is nothing wrong with a little sweet chocolate deliciousness.
