Extra-Easy Chia Pudding
Omega 3 fatty acids are powerful inflammation fighters, essential to an anti-cancer/pro-wellness nutrition plan.  They're found in robust amounts in salmon and other cold-water fish, walnuts and flaxseeds, and certain types of algae.  But have you wondered if there was a FUN way to get your omega-3s?

Here it is.  The mighty chia seed contains even a higher ratio of omega-3s than super-protective flaxseeds.  When added to liquid, it forms a gel that makes it a natural base for pudding.  Enjoy this super-simple treatand know that your body is enjoying it, too!

Ingredients:

1/2 cup organic chia seeds

1 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk (can substitute rice, oat or soy milk)

1 teaspoon stevia 

1/2 teaspoon natural vanilla extract

dash sea salt

Optional add-ins:

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

berries

chopped peach or mango

Method:

Warm almond milk and honey in small saucepan just until honey melts.

Remove from heat and stir to fully blend in stevia

Add chia seeds, vanilla, salt and cinnamon, if desired.  Stir to combine all ingredients.

Stir in berries or chopped fruit, if using.

Transfer to individual pudding dishes or into a single glass container.  Allow to cool to room temperature, about 1 hour.  Enjoy as soft pudding at room temperature, or refrigerate 1 hour for a firmer texture.
