Then layer it all into a mason jar, and you’ve got a skin-loving, creamy, sweet, #beautyfood breakfast-to-go! You can even peel and slice the kiwi the night before to simplify your morning.
Chia seeds provide quality protein and fiber that stabilizes blood sugar, so you feel full without the bloat.
