Coconut Chia Seed Pudding

This is a super convenient, nutrient dense breakfast that could be enjoyed any time of the day. It requires only a few ingredients and a sealed container. 

1 1/2 cups oatmeal
1/4 cup chia seeds
1/4 cup maple syrup 
2 t cinnamon
3/4 cup coconut milk

Mix all ingredients. Refrigerate overnight.

Chia seeds are an excellent vegetarian source of protein, much higher than most plant foods.  Protein is a weightless friendly macronutrient that can reduce appetite and cravings.  Coconut oil is high in short and medium chain fatty acids, which are easily digested and sent right to the liver, providing instant energy.  What are your favorite ways to incorporate chia seeds and coconut oil into your diet?
