Tell me this doesn't remind you of the rhinestone back pockets of True Religion jeans starting from 2002 to.....now? I'm fairly certain they're still a thing in parts of this country that will remain unnamed. BUT I digress.
Isn't is great when you don't have to choose between easy or delicious? You really can have it all and this is a great example of that! Plus the fiber leaves you feeling full for like 12 hours. BLUEBERRY LEMON JAM CHIA SEED PUDDING.
If it's just too many new terms for you that you're head is spinning then GOOD. No one said change was nestled in your comfort zone! The stars of the show in this small production are the chia seeds so let's do a quick benefit breakdown and then I promise my chit chat will be over:
- Packed with fiber and protein
- More CALCIUM than milk
- Great source of phosphorus and manganese
- Slightly less great source of potassium, zinc, and copper
- Contain tons of antioxidants (help fight cancer/free radicals that promote aging)
- One of THEE best sources of Omege-3 (longer post here)
2 LAYERS. YOU WILL NEED:
Layer 1: chia seed pudding
- 1/4 cup chia seeds
- 1 cup coconut milk
- Vanilla stevia to keep it low cal OR
- 2 dates (if sweetening naturally)
HOW: blend coconut milk and sweetener of choice, add to chia seeds (and stir, obviously) let sit over night. If the texture of the seeds isn't your fav you can also blend it after its sat in the fridge overnight.
Layer 2: blueberry lemon jam
- 1 cup blueberries
- Juice of 3-4 lemons
- 3 tbsp agave
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
HOW: blend blueberries, lemon juice, agave. Stir in chia seeds and let sit for at least 2-3 hours. Make this thicker by adding more chia seeds to your preference. Great to add to rice cakes or toast (gluten free is implied here).
DONE! LAYER WITH FRESH BLUEBERRIES.
