Mixed Berry Chia Seed Jam Oat Crumble

It's funny how much stress it was causing me when I first started this ridiculous elimination diet, because I truly had no idea what to eat.  Everytime I read anything about the diet, they always said to eat 'plenty of fish and vegetables'. This is all fine and dandy, and I couldn't agree more.  However, the thought of mucking about with fish first thing in the morning is positively revolting.  This must be why I am naturally more of a scone or buttery/jammy toast sort.

I reeeaaallly like breakfast. A lot. In fact, I sometimes start looking forward to it at 3am.  And so I had no idea what to eat, which meant I wasn't really eating much.  I inadvertently lost a tiny bit of weight, felt like a shitty wreck, got sick, and was completely out of sorts.  Not awesome, to say the least, and also kinda not the point when I'm trying to figure out why I feel just generally lousy as it is.  And so, I typed into google late one night 'what to eat for breakfast when you can't eat anything', and voila!  Here we are!  And my favorite part is that my six year old loves it.  She has been having me pack it for her everyday for her snack at school, along with a small tupperware of fresh fruit to go with it.  And since my girl won't eat a damned thing in the morning before school, this is a very wonderful thing indeed.
