If you’ve been following Hannah Bronfman on Instagram, you’re well aware that the DJ/#fitspo queen is a big fan of chia bowls. Every morning, we wake up to mouth-watering shots of her breakfast, so immaculately arranged that it almost looks too good to eat—almost. Since we’re always onboard for a healthy meal option to jumpstart our day (and maybe help us achieve a rock solid beach bod), we reached out to Bronfman for her go-to recipe.
This chia bowl, with apples and nuts, packs enough protein to keep the new face of Clinique’s #FaceForward campaign from getting hungry between meals. “Since I'm always on the go, it's important to have a nutrient-filled breakfast,” she tells InStyle. “This one is super-filling without being too heavy.” The best part? It’s a cinch to make. Bronfman mixes her bowls at night before bed and only allots five minutes in the morning to swirl in a sweet mix of toppings. Read on for the full how-to.
