Post-Workout Treat High in Protein

I love this breakfast because it takes literally ten minutes to prepare; it is very rich in fiber, potassium, selenium, protein and minerals; tastes like a dessert without the sugars; fills you up and replenishes your muscles after a morning workout (which I hope you are doing because your body needs it: even if it is just mild yoga, walk around the block or light stretching!:)

What You Need:

  • two tablespoons of chia seeds
  • two tablespoons of sunflower seeds
  • a tablespoon of cacao powder
  • a teaspoon of green powder (I use this one)
  • a scoop of your favorite plant-based protein.  I recommend Sunwarrior or Vega.
  • a teaspoon of tahini
  • a cup of fresh raspberries
  • one zucchini


The night before (or one to two hours before you eat), soak the chia seeds in a bowl with a non-dairy milk of your choice, tea, or distilled water. I like flax, coconut and almond milk. The chia seeds will double their size and form a jello-pudding consistency.

Then the only thing you need to do is add the rest of the ingredients, stir them together and enjoy your breakfast!
