This recipe was slightly modified from the original, by Giada De Laurentiis. I first tried Chia Seed Pudding when I did a "mason jar" breakfast exchange with some girlfriends. We all made 6 mason jars of one type of make ahead breakfast to share and went home with 6 new ideas (and breakfast for the week!) This one was my favorite, made by my friend Lindsey.

Chia seeds are a healthy addition to your diet! They are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. They also contain protein and minerals including as iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc. They may help improve cardiovascular risk factors such as lowering cholesterol, triglycerides and blood pressure. The high fiber will be filling, so helpful for weight loss.  Chia seeds are very absorbent and develop a gelatinous texture when soaked in liquid making it easy to mix them into dishes.

I love this recipe because you can make it ahead in a mason jar and just throw the jar in your bag as you head out the door to work. No extra effort. You can double, triple or quadruple the recipe and have breakfast for every day of the week!

Ingredients:
½ cup unsweetened almond milk (could really use any kind of milk)
½ cup 0% greek yogurt (can also use 2%) - for more volume and a thinner pudding could substitute equal amount of milk for the yogurt if you avoid dairy
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 TB chia seeds
1 cup raspberries (any fruit works – strawberries, peaches, mango, pineapples, etc)
1 TB slivered almonds

Directions
In medium bowl, whisk together almond milk, yogurt and vanilla until blended. Whisk in chia seeds and let sit for 30 minutes. Stir to distribute seeds if they have settled. Put in glass or small mason jar, cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning top with raspberries and slivered almonds. Voilà! Breakfast is ready to go!

Education is anything which let people know that they are not so common that anyone else can make a fool of them and it also let people know that they are not so special or superior so that they think that others are nothing in front of them.
