As we get ready to immerse ourselves in the happenings of next Presidential election, we ought to nourish our bodies with something very delicious and very healthy.  No matter how busy you are, eating a wholesome, nutritious breakfast  will probably save you time in the long run. By recharging your brain and body, you'll find that you’re more efficient in just about everything you do.  And if you're one of those peoeple who never eat breakfast, this is great any time of the day. 


1 container (32 oz.) plain, 
Greek-style yogurt 
2-1/2 cups milk

2 cups uncooked steel-cut oats
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup chia seeds

1/4 cup flax seeds
2 apples, chopped
1 Tbsp. cinnamon

1. Mix ingredients in large bowl until combined.

2. Spoon into 10 half-pint size jars.

3. Refrigerate until ready to eat. 
  • Of course this works with any type of plain Greek yogurt.I prefer the richness and creaminess of the full fat type.
  • This pudding is safe to eat until 1 week after the sell by date on the milk and yogurt. Always go by the first calendar date.
  • This is especially good when you use freshly ground cinnamon. You can grind cinnamom sticks in a clean coffee grinder. Break them up first using a rolling pin (put them in a zip lock bag so they don't fly all over your kitchen).
(Note: used full-fat plain Greek-style yogurt in analysis.  Does not include flax seed and additional cinnamon; will update using nonfat plain Greek-style yogurt, flax and cinnamon asap)
