I find it very hard to motivate to swim not only in winter but especially on a cold winter morning. Of course it helps to have a friend waiting for you at the pool, but it doubly helps to know you have this to come home to for breakfast!
Warm Me Up Chia Rice Cereal (makes 1 serving)
1/2 cup brown rice (already cooked)
2 tbsp chia seeds
1/2 cup milk (I like coconut milk)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp agave or honey
1/4 apple chopped
1/4 cup raisins
(You can substitute with any fruit of choice!)
Combine all ingredients in a 1 quart pot on the stove. Bring to a boil and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Let cool for 1-2 minutes and serve. You can also double (or quadruple!) the recipe and then just reheat it through the week, adding some liquid (preferably your milk of choice) each time.
