Super yummy berry & fruit bowl with chia pudding this morning. You can’t see it but there is 1 tbsp chia seeds, and 1 tbsp @holycrapcereal (chia-buckwheat-hemp) soaked overnight in almond milk on the bottom of this bowl, along with 1 whole nectarine sliced. On top is a thick ice-creamy smoothie blend of blueberries, blackberries, and banana with some coconut flakes and a little more un-soaked @holycrapcereal sprinkled on.
