The main event of July (not just for me but for all Slovakia I assume) was Pohoda musical festival. I’ve never taken part in summer open air activities and was quite nervous if my inner introvert survives in a crowd of 35000. Well, I shouldn’t have been nervous as the festival was unexpectedly cool: really good organized, with plenty of workshops, master classes and great music, of course. Food courts were also great with all possible types of dishes: from fresh coconuts to traditional Slovak langos (fried dough with different toppings like cheese or garlic) or from absolutely great pastrami (it was my first pastrami and I totally liked it) to chia pudding. I finally tried the famous Slovak codfish salad tapped into hot dog bun. It tasted ridiculously good despite the fact that I have prejudice to mayo salads. Well, once in a while 🙂
On one of festival days my breakfast was chia pudding made by Lunter company ( the biggest Slovak producers or tofu and vegetarians spreads like hummus or “fake codfish salad”. Btw, it makes Slovakia special, where else can you try codfish salad hot dog or fake codfish salad made from soya beans?
Chia pudding inspired me to use chia seeds which I bought during my trip to Poland last year but almost didn’t use it.
My first breakfast after Pohoda was overnight rice flakes and chia pudding. Here is the recipe.

2. Mix milk with dry ingredients and stir properly.
2. Put fruit on the bottom of the glass, add a few tablespoons of pudding, then add another layer of fruit, another layer of pudding and keep doing it until you fill the glasses.
4. Put your pudding into the fridge and wait till the morning when you have healthy breakfast which will save your precious morning time.
Notice: you can substitute milk with rice, almond or coconut milk. You can use more milk if you want to have it more liquid.
