If you’ve tried the Chia Seed Porridge from my free 30-Day PCOS Diet Challenge then you’ll know exactly what I mean when I say that chia seeds can have an immediate impact on your gut health – and this is why it’s one of my favorite ingredients to use.

This breakfast is beautiful, delicious, and nutritious and deserves a spot in your PCOS recipe repertoire.

Not only are chia seeds one of the richest sources of dietary fiber you’ll find, but they also contain exceptional amounts of omega-3 fatty acids which help reduce inflammation.

PCOS Breakfast Recipe Chia ParfaitHere’s everything you’ll need to make this PCOS-friendly breakfast parfait:

  • Cooked quinoa
  • Chia seeds
  • Flaxseed/Linseed meal
  • Almond milk
  • Cacao powder
  • Coconut yogurt
  • Fresh blueberries
  • Fresh strawberries

This recipe requires a little forethought though. Make sure you have some cooked quinoa on hand, and allow yourself at least two hours for the chia seeds to set. The mix will keep for several days in the refrigerator so don’t hesitate to make a big batch.
