Ch-ch-ch Chia...Pudding

OK, so it doesn't LOOK all that appetizing, but it's rather tasty: chia "pudding" (no cook) made with almond milk and maple syrup. Chia seeds (the ones I have are black, hence the lovely grey color!) are super high in protein and fiber. And yes, I believe they are THOSE chia seeds. The texture is rather like tapioca.

We have a hard time with breakfast...boring, not all that great for you, etc., etc., so I was nosing around the interwebs and found this. It's filling, eaten with some fruit...until it's not: about 3 hours after eating it, you are all of a sudden HUNGRY. Variety, spice, life.

I'm so boring breakfast-wise, blame it on my Dutch blood. We have bread every morning with either cheese, ham or chocolate sprinkles... I need my chocolate though, might not be entirely good for me, but it tastes good. ;)

I always see great & prolly good tasting alternatives online, but I never seem to find the time (nor will) to spend time on that in the morning...

I do wonder what you added to make the bird feed (sorry) tasty? Or do these seeds really have that much flavour?

Donuts and coffee cake are never boring!!! (Also NOT healthy--I know, I know!)

I've had it. Try it with chocolate almond milk, too. Yummy! And chia seeds are wildly full of omega fatty acids, which we need. Good choice!
