Chia Seed Pudding

Have you tried chia seeds? They are super good for you. I have only just tried them recently me myself. Chia is the Mayan word for strength. These little seeds were a big staple of the Aztec and Mayans diet. One single serving of chia seeds contains 42% of your daily need for fiber and it packs more omega 3 fatty acids than a piece of salmon. Chia seeds will absorb up to 12 times their own weight, making you feel full longer. They are great to throw in smoothies and pudding.

Chia Seed Pudding

2 cups milk (I used hemp milk.  Almond milk would work too.)
1/2 cup chia seeds
1 cup blueberries
1 orange cut into segments
zest of one orange
1 tsp ground vanilla beans
1/4 cup goji berries
2 T cacao nibs

Throw all the ingredients in a bowl and chill in the fridge for a few hours. Makes 4 servings.  Takes all of 5 minutes to make and will keep you full for a long time afterward.
