Lent is here, which for many people means giving up something like sweets or alcohol.
Religious or not, I tend to find times like these a good reminder to revisit one’s New Year’s resolutions. We could all eat a little healthier anyway, right?
Today I’m sharing a sweet treat that’s on the lighter side. (I mean, really, what is life without dessert?)
This pudding is a tasty and easy snack, plus you get all the benefits of eating chia seed with a little chocolate or vanilla flavor — your choice.
And yes, chia seeds are the same ones grown in Chia Pets!
