Happy Monday! Boy what a busy weekend it was! The tulip-man and I have fallen into a lazy weekend routine involving ample episodes of Bob’s Burgers, possibly shooting a foodie video, and optionally changing out of sweatpants. But this weekend was different.

On Saturday we were lucky enough to be invited onto an enormous container ship for a tour. The boyfriend-tulip-man just started his own business in shipping and logistics and needed some website photos, so decked in a highlighter yellow vest, hard hat, and all the camera gear I could carry, I hopped on board (ha…get it?!) for our little 4 person tour, led by the captain himself!

We spent the entire next day with noses pressed to the glass of the Rotterdam Zoo exhibits. It’s funny how when you’re a young’n you LOVE zoos, then you turn into a moody teen and are so over it, then become what some would call an adult and are back to LOVING everything about zoos. You can guess where I’m at on that spectrum.

But all that bustle and bustle meant I was not thinking about what I’d have for breakfast this morning, easily the most important meal of the entire week. Monday morning breakfasts set the tone for the week, so they’ve gotta bring their A game. Fortunately, there’s chia seed breakfast pudding for that. Laced with oats and mandarin oranges (our spotlight ingredient!), this chia seed pudding is cozy, quick, healthy, and fresh all at once.

  1. This breakfast looks so tropical, like something I would eat at a resort. This looks wonderful and full of flavor.

      Haha aw thanks, Ali! 🙂

  2. This looks so yummy! Love the tasty toppings — especially the coconut!

    1. Sarah says:

      I got SO (okay maybe TOO) excited when I found that shredded coconut. I’m finding that Holland doesn’t have an ample supply of all the unique little foods you can find readily in America. So now that I have the coconut, I’m obsessed 🙂

  3. Renz says:

    Love the addition of mandarins and chocolate

  4. Christie says:

  5. Meeta says:

    While I like Chia seeds in my porridge and muesli I just cannot get used to to consistency when they are soaked in pudding for,. WHat I am really liking here are the wonderful flavors that come together.

    1. Sarah says:

      Yea it can be a unique texture, with the thick feel of pudding and the interspersed seeds. But you could definitely translate these flavors over to morning oats! 🙂
