chia seed pudding!

When I first found out I was having a baby, my friend, Elle, gave me a book called “100 Healthiest Foods During Pregnancy”. It has a ton of great info on what to eat each trimester to give your baby what he/she needs most. During the 2nd trimester, chia seeds are part of the list. I started buying Mama Chia drinks from new seasons, and quickly grew a love for these weird slimy little seeds. Now, I am in my third trimester and there is a whole new slew of foods I should be eating – but I’m not ready to say goodbye to the chia seed, and that is probably OK. They are SOOOOOO healthy. They’re packed with omega-3s and all sorts of other good stuff. When I was at New Seasons the other day, I saw that they carried prepackaged chia seed pudding and I felt intrigued, but didn’t buy any. I love chia seeds and I love pudding – why didn’t I buy any? So I could make my own and I did and I loved it. I can’t wait to try other variations!! This will make you two servings of pudding. Feel free to top with shredded coconut, berries, add cocoa powder – whatever! The possibilities are absolutely endless.
