Chia Seed Pudding

This is a recipe I’ve been wanting to try for a long time. I’m not sure why I held off so long, because it’s ridiculously easy to make. This is a pretty hot item in the fitness industry right now, so I finally bought myself a pack of chia seeds and tried a simple recipe. Praise the Chia gods! It turned out wonderful! It was an easy breakfast that I could go to when I was running out of time. It’s very nutritious, full of healthy fats, and it is so utterly simple. There are so many ways to tweak the recipe here and there to get the flavors that you want. This is an “overnight” recipe and will serve you well throughout the week. Here are the nutritional facts per serving (around 1/2 cup) of the one I made:

I honestly can’t say enough good things about this recipe! It has saved me many a morning when I’m rushing around. The flavors are wonderful: vanilla and cinnamon, how can you go wrong? The texture is also really great. It seems like it’s an indulgence, but it’s really quite healthy. Feel free to add things like oats, berries, or nuts! Change it up and make it yours! This one is going to be a staple at the Hungry & Fit household. This one is satisfying and healthy. Try this recipe to stay hungry and fit!
