3. Raw Cashewgurt Bowl
Store-bought yogurt tends to be filled with processed ingredients, fillers, and added sugars. Take the guesswork out of your meal planning equation and enjoy this flavorful “cashewgurt” instead. Cashews are a great source of filling protein and healthy fats, and when blended, they have the same consistency as yogurt. This recipe also features psyllium husks powder, which serves as a thickening agent to make the mixture creamier (and packs fiber to help ease digestive issues). Enjoy it with granola and fresh fruit. Photo and recipe: Green Kitchen Stories

10. Simple Mango Chia Pudding
Chia seeds offer a boost of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and because it has the perfect combination of fat, protein and fiber, they also help balance your body’s blood sugar levels. Chia seed puddings can be made ahead of time since the chia seeds need time to soak in the liquid (in this case coconut milk) and form into a gelatinous paste. Pack them in portable Mason jars or Tupperware so you can take them along with you. Photo and recipe: Nutrition Stripped

13. Blueberry Buckwheat Breakfast Pudding
Contrary to the “wheat” in its name, buckwheat is actually a fruit seed. Similar to quinoa, buckwheat’s grainy texture makes it a great gluten-free alternative to whole grains. Buckwheat groats are soaked overnight to help soften them up, and then are blended with antioxidant-rich blueberries. Maple syrup and banana sweeten things up and lemon juice rounds out the flavor.
