Jessica Seinfeld is the author of three New York Times bestselling cookbooks, most recently, The Can't Cook Book, and the President and Founder of Baby Buggy, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing clothing and equipment to families in cities across the U.S. She lives in New York City with her husband, two dogs and three children. Here, Seinfeld takes us inside the kitchen to help us master basic and delicious breakfast foods in a fun and interesting way.
When it comes to a morning ritual, Jessica Seinfeld’s always involves a "glory" bowl—and she’s here to show us how to create the healthy dish at home. This no-cook meal is essentially a power cereal concocted using simple superfoods that will have you in and out of the kitchen in no time. Plus, it will leave you full and energized for the rest of the day.
After starting with a base of chia seeds Seinfeld adds almond or coconut milk, but she advises to use whatever type you prefer (even water works!). Let it sit for 10 minutes, then top it off with a mix of your favorite nuts, fruits, and seeds, and you're good to go. The best part about "glory" bowls is that there are a million different options when it comes to toppings, so you can switch it up everyday. Always in a rush? You can even prepare the chia seeds the night before for a more efficient morning.
