August 3, 2014

Author Notes: Chia seed pudding is a) easy b) delicious c) packed with fiber. Should you wish to make it decadent (and slightly less healthy) continue on to the recipes. Please note that you can make this pudding in whatever way suits you--substitute milks, sweeteners, flavors, and containers. (The chia seed to milk ratio is from the back of the bag of chia seeds.)philipm
