15-Minute Protein Chia Seed Cereal

Thanks to Kim Kardashian, the viral chia seed cereal has been all over the internet. It’s very similar to chia pudding, only not as thick, and you don’t have to wait overnight for the seeds to plump up. I love chia pudding, like my Mango Coconut Chia Pudding, so I knew I would love this chia cereal. I add protein powder to keep me fuller longer, and it’s was perfect. I’m hooked, I’ve been making it all week! If you want to see how to make chia cereal, watch my video here.

This easy Puerto Rican Sofrito recipe is one of my favorites. I freeze the sauce in ice cube trays and keep it stocked in my freezer so I always have it when I need to whip up a quick meal. Dishes, like beans, stews, and arroz con gandules, all benefit from one or two of these instant flavor boosters, which I melt and sauté into whatever I’m cooking. I recently shared a recipe on instagram for my quick gandules (coming soon!) which so many people asked me to share, but I couldn’t without this recipe that I use as my base.

This easy Salmon Rice Bowl is fast and easy, made with just a few ingredients! Salmon salad using canned salmon is the star of the dish served over brown rice (I love frozen brown rice from Trader Joes) with diced cucumbers, sriracha, scallions, and furikake or nori. I am always trying to share new, quick lunch ideas that don’t take too much time to make. Earlier this week I posted an avocado quinoa salad as a vegetarian lunch option. Like tuna, canned salmon is a great pantry staple for protein, and it’s budget-friendly. More canned salmon recipes you may like are these Waffled Salmon Cakes, or swap the tuna for salmon in this Mayo-Less Tuna Pasta Salad.
