Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding

Print

I’m always looking for things I can make in advance and have ready to grab and go. Breakfast is such an important meal but I don’t always have the time to cook it and I avoid processed items as much as possible. This recipe is so easy and fast to put together and the variations are endless.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Chia seeds have earned the title of superfood. Tons of fiber and protein are packed into these little seeds, with very few calories. They are also a great source of calcium and magnesium, two essential minerals that aren't so easy to get.
