Bone-building Recipe

Breakfast of champions or skeleton-building snack! Chia seeds are a decent source of calcium and a good source of phosphorus, another mineral that plays a vital role in bone health. Phosphorus works in conjunction with calcium to build and maintain bone structure.

Servings: 2 servings
Prep Time:

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Bone boosting swap: replace 2/3 cup water with calcium fortified almond or other nut milk for a bone-building calcium and protein boost.

Gut-friendly addition: Add in some hemp hearts – these fiber-rich seeds have plant-sourced Omega-3s which offer anti-inflammatory properties for improved gut health.
