Greek Chia Breakfast Parfait

Morning Friends!  Well, Mom is flying home as this post goes up.  Her flight was cancelled last weekend and she was rescheduled to return to Wisconsin today.  I have no idea why anyone would want to go to Wisconsin right now.  It’s 80 degrees in Phoenix & either snowing or below zero in Wisconsin.  She’s been visiting since before Christmas and it’s been such a blessing having her here these last months as I’ve been recovering from my foot injury.  She’s helped keep my home in order, maintain my sanity while I juggle my crazy jammed packed schedule & take care of me.  Between recovering from this foot injury, hours of fitness training, physical therapy, blogging & work, my life can be like a circus act at times.  And no matter what age you are, it’s just nice having your Mom take care of you. 

After the airport shuttle picked up Mom at 4:30 this morning, I headed to the gym as usual for 5:00 a.m. for spin class.  Good thing I had fitness to distract me from thinking about her departure.  The endorphins helped me forget she’s leaving, but I’m sure once I get home from work tonight it will hit me she’s gone.  I wish my Mom & Dad lived closer especially now that they’re getting older.  Also, I might be a pinch scared about being on my own since I’m not fully recovered yet.  

Now that Mom’s gone, I’m going to need to find new taste testers for all the new recipes I’ve been making like this Greek Chia Breakfast Pudding I made last weekend.  This one is incredibly easy to make, low in calories and packed with protein.  I ate this last weekend before spin class.  I don’t eat much before I workout and I avoid carbs.  I love oatmeal, but I have a difficult time working out on a belly full of carbs.  It takes my body too much time to digest carbs, which impacts my performance.  Some people can eat carbs before working out.  Everyone is different.  This Greek Chia Breakfast Parfait was the right amount of fuel for me pre-workout.  Even better….it was like eating desert for breakfast!

    I’m always looking for new chia pudding recipes, and this one sounds delicious! I’m sorry to hear about your Mom going back to Wisconsin. I know how hard it can be living so far from family (I’m in Kuwait, family is in Pennsylvania) and even w/ technology being as advanced as it is these days, nothin compares to making memories in person. Keep your head up girl & know you’ll see them again (hopefully soon?) :)
