[MUSIC] Hi, InStyle, I'm Jessica Seinfeld. I'm here to talk to you about breakfast. My morning ritual is something I call making glory bowls. It is a power cereal. It's just the way I start breakfast every day. It's no cook, simple. Super foods. And you get in and out of that kitchen in no time, and you're full and energized for the rest of your days. My base is always chia seeds, two tablespoons, and I personally use almond milk or coconut milk, but you can use whatever you are into. To and you can also use water. So that the cheese needs for my little gelatinous coating on them, which makes them really filling and much easier to eat. You can start it the night before, so you can just pull it out of your fridge, or you let it sit for you know, ten, 15 minutes. Then it looks like this. It's like a little pudding. And then you can add whatever you want. I usually do kind of a mix of nuts and fruit, or seeds. I always add hemp seeds, which I love, cuz they're full of protein and lots of vitamins and fiber, and they taste really good. And then I will probably go on to do, let's use sliced almonds. And, they have such a nice little crunch in the morning. Some pomegranate seeds let's do that, which I love, they are my favorite, [INAUDIBLE] with pomegranate and some raspberries, now how about some fresh nutmeg. [MUSIC] [NOISE] Just a nice touch and a little bit of honey but not much. You don't really need it when you use berries. This is a power move. A great way to start your morning. Let's make another one. Let's. Do grated apple and we'll choose a nut or something. I use a regular cheese grater, and I just go for it. And I use the skin on, but of course, I have washed my apple. And what else? Let's put some walnuts. In there, lots of good stuff, and walnuts, and blueberries. These are pretty and they're also really good for you. And cinnamon, cinnamon and apple is a great combination. A little honey. This one looks great, but again. There are a million different options for you to try every morning.
