Can you believe Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away? With the holidays approaching, I like to get a handle on my eating habits since the average weight gain between Thanksgiving and New Years Eve is around 5 pounds. Besides going to the gym and working out, I love making healthy and easy snacks that complements my lifestyle.
Due to my busy schedule, I decided to create my own vanilla chia seed pudding – not only is it simple to make, it tastes as good as it looks!
When I am making a single serving of chia pudding at a time, I just stir the cup of liquid and seeds together in an empty container or mason jar. Wait a few minutes then stir the ingredients together. Then, I just let it sit for an hour or even half hour (if you are impatient) before enjoying. To prep it for breakfast, I have found it best to let it sit overnight in the fridge.
