Power Seeds - Boost your Breakfast!

Hemp Hearts
I recently started using what I call 'Power Seeds' as part of my regular breakfast. To make this grain-free omega-3 rich nutrition booster, you'll need the following:
-Equal parts ground flax seed, hemp hearts and chia seeds
-raisins, coconut flakes (whatever you like, roughly 1/4 - 1/2 cup each)
-2 tsp cinnamon

Chia seeds
Mix all those ingredients in a 1 L Mason jar and keep in the fridge. You can add 2 Tbsp into your oatmeal OR cover in almond milk and let stand 2 min (it will thicken) and eat for a grain-free cereal option! The hemp hearts make this meal high in protein in iron as well, and the fiber from all three seed varieties is very high! This mixture will keep you full and satisfied. I also add this mix to my kids oatmeal, yogurt and salads. Enjoy!
