Obsessed with super seed mix

 Hi again, everybody! I'm back.

I found a little downtime so I am happy to share with all of you what I am loving recently. On most days, when I don't have much time for cooking, or when I feel like snacking, I sit infront of my laptop with a bowl of super seed mix. YES, here's my current obsession.

It's only recently that I discovered this. One day, about 2 months ago, my mother-in-law gave a me a bagful of flax, pumpkin, chai with granola seeds and told me it's great to mix it with yogurt. Serbians, by the way, loooooovvvveeee milk & yogurt. My husband alone can finish one litre of each a day if he wants to. Honestly, he couldn't make me to drink yogurt until the start of my pregnancy. I just never liked it. 'Cause the only kind of yogurt I have tasted before are the flavored ones sold in supermarkets back home. And they taste like plastic. But one strange day, in the middle of winter last JanuaryI suddenly felt the need to drink yogurt. It was the most unusual craving for me! Even I could not believe that urge but as I learned later on, with pregnant women, they usually look for food that their body needs. I guess that, since I was always against drinking milk and yogurt my WHOLE life, I needed that much calcium for a well-balanced diet since I was growing a baby. And so the obsession to drinking milk and yogurt stayed on up to this day. I really think highly of my calcium intake that me and my husband we can slurp up gallons in a few days. And when we buy milk we literally buy in dozens ;p

We always go for yogurts with 2.8% fat; just the plain and simple yogurt; the most wholesome and versatile

So, let me share with you guys how I make this simple snack. This is really just straightforward.

First, I pour in just enough yogurt in a small-sized bowl.

 And then, I add in about 6 tablespoons of my seeds.

 And then, I add about 2 teaspoons of sugar. I normally use brown sugar but in this case, I used white.

Breakfast for the champions, as some would say. I usually have 2 bowls or more in a day.

Easy right? Easy but excellent for overall health. It has a wide variety of health benefits, a great source of Omega 3's, fiber, calcium, iron, potassium, protein, among others. Plus it contains lots of antioxidants, and is great for boosting your immune system.

 I normally try different seeds and combine it with dried fruits as well. And for some of you who may not like it with yogurt, you can turn them into a smoothie or mix them in your pancakes. 

For now, here's what I enjoy. With a cup of chamomile tea on the side, since the cold winter has arrived.

Ahhh, so nice and warm especially with Christmas coming up!

But soon, who knows maybe I can share a good pancake recipe with this! If I can squeeze a little downtime again since there's so much going on.. Catholic Christmas, New Year, and then Orthodox Christmas, and then Orthodox New Year! Phew.. not 2, but 4 celebrations. Will tell you more about it next time!




  1. Great tip to share! I'm eating it almost every morning but with honey instead of pure sugar. And mostly with milk, it makes muesli soft.. :)

  2. Thank you, I should try it with milk and honey like you said :) I am guessing it's even better!
