My Matcha obsession is a little bit out of control lately so even my chia puddings get a nice dosage of the magical green powder. This pudding is one of my favorite breakfast options at the moment. You can make it ahead of time or the night before, it is a nutrition bomb, tastes incredible and is pretty too. You have to try it. Prepare the chia base the night before and you don't have to hustle in the morning to find a healthy nutritious breakfast. Just add some fruit, granola, nuts, nut butter, seeds, coconut... You can even store it in the fridge for up to 3 days!

Matcha is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. There is hardly any food that contains such high amounts of antioxidants, which fight free radicals and benefit our health immensely. Another nutrient called L-Theanine makes matcha a superfood. Thanks to the subtle caffeine and the amino acid L-theanine, matcha calms the mind and relaxes the body, it enhances mood and aids concentration. Make sure you purchase a high-quality matcha powder, it will be worth it! My personal favorite is Whisk Premium Matcha (use discount code "READYTONOURISH" for 10% off)
