Simple. Efficient. Effective.

My whole vibe around my biz (and even my life) is to keep it SIMPLE. And to be EFFICIENT. While still being totally EFFECTIVE.
 
In fact, if I could pick a “creed” to live by it would be this:
 
Keep it Simple.
Be Efficient.
Make it Effective.
 
I’m not always successful but it’s my aim. I’m working towards it. Truth be told when it gets complicated, time-consuming and doesn’t really do much for me I tend to check out.  In fact this is what I dream of doing whenever things get too crazy:
You can’t always keep it simple, though.
 
And, you can’t always keep it efficient (somethings just aren’t meant to be efficient).
 
But you can always be effective.
 
Yes, always effective. How? By accepting you did the best you could with what you had (whether it be materials, time, mindset, what have you).  
 
You can always simplify kindness (it doesn’t need to be elaborate – sometimes a smile or a kind word can go miles!).
 
You can always simplify life (get rid of junk – junk in your house, junk in your mind, junk relationships, junk on your screens).
 
And with that I bring you a simple, time efficient, and effective breakfast:
 
 
Chia Pudding
1 Can Coconut Milk (none of that light stuff!)
1/4-1/3C Chia Seeds (I didn’t measure so I’m guessing)
1/2C Blueberries (mine were frozen)
2T maple syrup (or 1/2 dropper whole leaf stevia)
 
Dump it all in a quart jar. Cap it up. Shake like crazy (those dumb chia seeds like to clump). Then throw it in the fridge. Leave it 4 hours to overnight.
 
Enjoy.
 
Want more texture? Top it with more fresh blueberries or chopped nuts or a small amount of raisins or dried cherries or 1T of hemp seeds.
 
Simple. Efficient. Effective.
 
How is this effective? One tablespoon of chia has 5g of fiber, 3g of healthy omega-3, 3g of protein and it’s packed with antioxidants.
 
You can mix up the fruit. Or leave it out. Or switch out fruit for 1/4-1/3C canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix!).
 
You can add cinnamon or nutmeg.
 
Or change out the coconut milk with almond or hemp or cashew milk.
 
It’s incredible easy to vary this nutritious breakfast.
