Apple Fig Chia Seed Pudding

This mason jar of loveliness tastes just like apple pie :) I got this idea when I was brainstorming ideas for new chia seed pudding flavors. I usually make chocolate peanut butter flavor (that one is in the fridge!) I wanted to branch out using different fruit and fruit combinations.
You must make this ASAP!

2 organic red apples
4 dried figs
2 tbsp of chia seeds
1 cup of almond milk
3 tsp of cinnamon
1 scoop of vanilla protein powder
Add the milk, chia seeds and protein powder to a mason jar and mix well. Put 1 apple in your food processor and process on high. Cut the figs into small pieces and slowly add them to your food processor. The mixture will get a little chewy and thick. Add the fig apple mix to your chia seed pudding and mix well. Add in the cinnamon and mix. Slice the other apple and top your pudding with it. Put the lid on the jar and refrigerate.

The next morning it will be like you're eating apple pie in a jar :)
If you don't have vanilla protein powder, add 3 tsp of vanilla extract or one vanilla bean. You can also add maple syrup if you need more sweetness. I hope you enjoy!!

Chewy Energy Bars (no added sugar, vegan, gluten-free)

Energy bars with lot of fiber, minimal sugar and high protein are a great snack. I grab and just go and I feel full for the time that I'm out and about and I need to get things done. I love a few brands of energy bars but I also love making my own-it's easy to choose what ingredients go in them and you can make a bunch and freeze These particular bars are without sugar by default since I ran out of maple syrup. They are still so delish!

Peanut Butter Vanilla Oat Milk Smoothie

I love trying new plant-based milks even though I usually buy West Soy unsweetened soy milk. I go for milks that have the least amount of ingredients and are organic. West Soy unsweetened plain soy milk is organic soybeans and water. Beautiful. If I don't buy milk, I make it myself, either almond or oat milk. Yesterday I bought oat milk and it is DELICIOUS!

How to Make Fluffy Basmati Rice

I'm always and forever trying to make rice like they make at Indian or Persian restaurants. It's so delicious, fluffy and flavorful and I love the texture of basmati rice. So, I was talking to a friend who makes rice alot and he helped me with the recipe. The idea is to sautee the rice first and add ingredients that will give it flavor such as garlic, onion, spices etc. I serve the rice with beans or tofu, either sauteed or in a curry sauce. Rice is just so amazing, it's simple but nutritious and is a great alternative to bread or other grains.
