Here are 15 simple recipes that will aid you during your time of reflection.
2. Easy Overnight Chia Pudding: Simply stir chia and milk in a glass and put it in the refrigerator. In a matter of hours, you’ll have a healthy dish rich with omega-3 fatty acids, protein and antioxidants. (via Chocolate and Sea Salt)
4. Chocolate Date Shake: Dates are like nature’s candy and can add just the right amount of sweetness to this super thick smoothie. No additional sugar needed. After all, the Prophet Muhammad has said, “A house without dates has no food.” (via Tuulia Talvio)
