I've been searching for a breakfast that's quick, easy, and full of protein to refuel me after my morning workout. This chia bowl is the ultimate breakfast: make-ahead, portable, refreshing, and filling. I add in protein powder for an extra boost, but if you don't like it, just adjust the amount of milk accordingly! Enjoy :) —Kasey
