Chocolate for breakfast?!? Yeah baby!!
I ALWAYS get asked ‘what do you eat??’
For some reason there is a fascination amongst many of us about the eating habits and eating choices of others (I was guilty of that for many years)
So I have decided to start sharing with you lovelies some of my most favourite and delicious recipes which I LOVE to make, cook and most importantly enjoy!
Now it goes without saying that CHOCOLATE is by far one of the most popular choices when we are craving something sweet and for many of us, it’s eating chocolate which has resulted in us ‘falling off diets’, beating ourselves up about it and then perhaps even binging on more.

When you start to learn how to NOURISH your body, this kind of behaviour is possible to change.
I believe that we all have a right to eat whatever we like, regardless of what other people think and regardless of what internally we believe we should. I also believe, however, that it is completely possible to find a way of eating what we like whilst nourishing our bodies and souls and learning to eat as if we TRULY LOVE OURSELVES.
So moving on. let me introduce you this divine chocolate delight made from chia seeds (you can get these in most supermarkets now)
Chia seeds are funny little things, they don’t look like much but when you add them to liquid they expand and turn jelly like! This chocolate pudding makes a great breakfast, snack or desert – I often eat it for breakfast, it’s a great way to start the day tucking into some divine chocolate. Now who wouldn’t want that?!?
Recipe – Chocolate Chia Pudding
Serves 2 people or 2 portions!
- 1 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond or coconut are my personal favs)
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 3 tablespoons raw cacao powder (baking cocoa will also work)
- Dash of pink Himalayan sea salt
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or raw honey
- Dark Chocolate shavings for garnish
Simply add all the ingredients together, give it a good mix (or better still put it in a jar and give it a crazy shake – with the lid on of course!!!). Pop it in the fridge for at least 4 hours and preferably over night. Enjoy with toppings of your choice (I love extra dark chocolate and raspberries on mine) and savour every mouthful. When learning to ditch the diet, break free from emotional eating and binging, I think it’s important to learn what your body enjoys to eat. After years of dieting we often lose touch of what that actually is. Try these chocolate puddings, you won’t be disappointed!
