I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! Anyone else forget how long it takes to get everyone dressed up and out of the house?!
Anyway, we had a great time with family all weekend long, and enjoyed some delicious meals and a lot of treats. I was feeling it yesterday!! I'm back to 100% today after fueling my body with a lot of fresh, whole foods yesterday!
You know I don't skimp on the treats, though, even after an indulgent weekend!! There are a lot of ways to make healthy treats, and this low carb chia pudding really hits the spot.
You may only know about chia from those famous Chia Pets we used to grow (cha-cha-cha-CHIA!), but believe it or not, eating those little seeds provides many health benefits!
1/2 cup full fat coconut milk
2 Tbls. chia seeds
Splash of vanilla extract
Mix together and refrigerate until thickened. When ready to eat, add:
1oz mashed raspberries
A serving of your favorite nut butter (I used Abby's Better date pecan!)
A few dark chocolate chips
Food is fuel.
I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
