Happy New Year! It's that time again, time for organization and routines. Is it just me? I didn't think so. 😉
We've been indulging and celebrating over the past month, and now it's time to get back on track. For some that's health goals, for some it's eating habits, for others it's organizing the home.
It just seems like December and all the 'out of routine' festivities brings us to a different pace of life. And now that's it's January--new year-- it's time to get re-focused.
You know what really sets the tone for me?
Getting started first thing with a ritual that sets the pace of the day. I'm more productive, and less likely to get off track. So, being a foodie and all, it would be breakfast and coffee. 🙂 My new favorite?
Yup! Greek Yogurt Chia Pudding. You saw that coming didn't ya. 😉 Don't worry Berry Smoothie and Quinoa Breakfast Bowls, you are not forgotten! But today, we're having pudding.
This Greek Yogurt Chia Pudding with delicious coffee is my go-to for breakfast. It's filling and tasty and keeps me satisfied until lunch.
I love the make ahead option, that way I can be prepared for the week ahead. I just have to hide them from my children. 😀 Kidding! Kidding!
