Breakfast: Matcha Chia Seed Pudding

 This is the perfect meal if you like to keep it light and easy in the mornings. If you are planning on doing any activities such as hiking or water sports, you may want to avoid a heavy meal. As a bonus, this recipe uses Sencha Naturals Matcha Latte powder, which will give you an added boost of energy. Make this recipe the night before, and wake up to a delicious, hassle-free breakfast.

Ecoidea White Chia Seeds are an amazing superfood that are high in omega-3 fatty acids and are full of fiber. Combining them with coconut milk and a little bit of cane sugar will give it a creamy texture. Top it off with sliced strawberries for added sweetness and unsweetened coconut flakes for a little crunch.

Lunch: Fire Roasted Black Bean Chili        

 This classic, hearty chili recipe comes together in a pinch and is always a crowd-pleaser. It can be made on either a stovetop in a large pot, or in a cast iron skillet on a grill over the fire. Everything can be prepared in one pan, which will stream-line your cooking process, leaving you with more time to enjoy the outdoors.

This dish features Muir Glen Organic Crushed Fire Roasted Tomatoes which will provide a bold flavour for the base as well as sautéed onions, garlic and bell peppers. For protein, Eden Organic Canned Black Beans provide 12 grams per serving and are canned with kombu seaweed which reduces digestive gas and bloating commonly associated with eating beans. Add in your spices—chili powder, oregano, cumin, sea salt and pepper. Finish with a pinch of cayenne (or more!) depending on your spice preference.

Diced avocado, crushed tortilla chips, green onions and chopped chives make for a great garnish in this recipe.
