Fitness with Ashley | Healthy Chia Yogurt Power Bowl Recipe

Hello!!! Today I have another healthy recipe for my 'fitness with Ashley' posts! 

I'm going to share one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast in the morning- a Chia Yogurt Power Bowl. 

What is a power bowl? It's litterly just a bowl filled with different healthy things that have a lot of nutrients, protein, etc. in them. You can make different ones for breakfast or you can do ones with veggies, rice/quinoa and chicken (or whatever meat/non meat you like) for lunch or dinner! 

Chia Yogurt Power Bowl 

What you'll need
- 2-3 large spoonfuls of Yogurt of your choice. I used Organic Greek Vanilla yogurt from whole foods (365 brand)
- 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of chia seeds
- A handful of your favorite granola
- 1 banana sliced and a handful of raspberries, or any other fruit of your choice 
- Honey drizzled over everything 

This makes for a really great late/night time snack too!! It's really yummy and I eat this almost every morning.
You can really put whatever you want in these- sometimes I throw in some slivered almonds, dark chocolate chips, dried fruit, etc. 

Some nutrition facts about the things I put in my power bowl-
-Greek yogurt is super good for you because it is high in protein and calcium! If you perfer regular yogurt, go ahead and use that instead, but since Greek has a lot of protein it will keep you fuller longer during the day. 
-Chia seeds are a great source of protein, fiber and omega-3. They are low in calories, and high in nutrients! 
-Bananas are one of the highest energy fruits. They are also a good source of potassium, vitamin c, and a great antioxidant!  

I hope you all enjoyed this recipe and let me know what your favorite healthy breakfast meals are!
