This Healthy Citrus Breakfast Bowl has been one of my new favorites to snack on lately. Unsweetened yogurt and homemade chia seed pudding make sup the base of this breakfast bowl. It is topped with fresh citrus fruit like tangerines, blood oranges, and grapefruit, and a sprinkle of bee pollen, flaxseeds, and a drizzle of honey finishes the bowl.

I always love the months following Christmas because citrus is in season! I love tangerines and mandarins and of course, grapefruit. My family and I add them to every breakfast and eat them as a snack as often as possible.

If you have leftover chia seed pudding, which you will keep in the same glass container you mixed it in and store in the fridge for up to three days. You can. make more breakfast bowls or add to a smoothie for a healthy omega-3 boost.
