The summer has shifted to autumn and for many of us the past few weeks have been all about getting back to our everyday routines. Work and school or not, the autumn has always been the time of change for me as it is for many others.
Whilst tuning back into old routines I feel like the autumn serves as a good timing to introduce some new elements to my days. During the summer you’ve had enough distance from your everyday life ways to not be so stuck with it anymore. Maybe the summer has inspired you and taught you some new ways. Whilst getting ready to tune back into the more structured days, I’ve tried to think of ways I can include a bit of that free summery feeling in my daily routines.
One of the most important elements when it comes to how I feel on a day is what my morning felt like. If I start the day in a rush, it’s quite difficult for me to let go of that feeling and it sticks with me all day long.
I love to take my time in the mornings, to wake up a few hours before I have to go anywhere and have that time for myself. To read a little and prep breakfast with time. Speaking of breakfast…
Prep the chia layer preferably on the night before. Mix all the ingredients together in the jar an pop it in your fridge.
The following morning check the taste of your chia pudding and adjust the amount of turmeric, milk or sweetner if needed.
Add the ingredients for the smoothie layer in your blender and blend till it's smooth and creamy. If you dislike the taste of spiralina feel free to leave it out and maybe add some extra matcha to the blend.
Layer in your most festive glass and garnish with some fresh berries and granola. Enjoy with time before even giving a thought to any to-do lists for the day.
