Megan’s Comments:

I have been such a fan of breakfast bowls lately. Smoothie bowls, chia bowls, and kefir bowls with fruit, nuts, cinnamon and coconut flakes. This one is perfect to enjoy for a dessert or breakfast and you can change it up in so many different ways!


  1. You can use more/less chia seeds depending on how thick you like your pudding
  2. You can add a teaspoon of cacao powder or top with cacao nibs for the chocolate taste.
  3. You can use any sweetener you would like: stevia, raw honey etc.
  4. The color of your pudding will be different depending on kind of spirulina you have.
  5. I like making this in a mason jar to store and then scoop some of it into my morning smoothie.
  6. Top with coconut flakes, fruit, cacao nibs.
  7. If I am having this for breakfast, I like to add quality protein powder to make it a great start to the day.

This serves 2-3.

Dr Jockers Comments:

I grew up eating bowl after bowl of cereal.  My healing diet discusses the importance of minimizing grains and so I stopped eating cereal many years ago.  This is completely grain-free, low-sugar and loaded with antioxidants, healthy fats and clean proteins.

Spirulina is a single cell algae containing an incredible array of nutrients that make them a functional whole food for sustaining life without the need for other foods.  These algae contain pre-digested protein (in the form of amino acids) for quick absorption and high utilization rates.

Spirulina contains essential omega-3 fatty acids such as EPA & DHA.  Algae, in fact, are the very source that fish, krill and other animals obtain their omega 3’s.  I recommend a high quality protein powder which could be a bone broth or a vegan protein powder consisting of pea and brown rice protein powders.  You can look at the proteins powders we recommend and use here

You kids (and husband) will be very excited about this cereal and it is all good!  None of the toxic sugars, GMO’s, trans-fats and artificial sweeteners in this like all the store bought cereals.  If they keep asking you can keep giving and they will only get healthier and stronger!
