If you’ve never heard of chia seeds, fear not: I shall fill you in. Chia seeds are the star of chia pets. You know: Ch-ch-ch-chia! Basically, the seeds sprout and give pottery a bit of hair. It’s really weird and a definite waste…unless you’re eating the sprouts.
You know what, now I gotta try that. It may not be the most appetizing, but I can only imagine how healthy that would be. Back to the point, chia seeds are very healthy for you. Disclaimer: If after a few days of eating this you experience some extreme bowel movements, don’t worry: that’s normal. Odds are you have a lot of things in your system that shouldn’t be there such as swallowed gum, teeth you accidently swallowed in your sleep, foods that don’t decompose (McDonalds), and tons of green plastic.
Anyways, I got the recipe and picture from one of my favorite sites. It’s called An Edible Mosaic. And Faith, the author of this fabulous blog, is truly inspirational.
Chia seed pudding has a very interesting texture. If you like tapioca pudding, but are trying to watch your weight, then chia seed pudding is for you. You’ve probably seen Chia Shots or Chia Drinks in your local health food store, and as you can probably see, a lot of people are jumping on the bandwagon. No wonder. Chia seed pudding can be eaten for breakfast, a side for lunch, a quick and easy snack, or even dessert! For this reason, I always try to have some in the house and my stock of chia seeds is always filled.
If you’re not eating healthy and never have, you need this cinnamon-vanilla treat. There is corn in almost everything now and the truth is: our body’s cannot digest it. Clean yourself out with something sweet and delightful. It’s easy, tasty, and did I mention healthy? If you have a loved one with cancer or something horrible, please recommend this to them. Maybe they have something in their system that needs to be washed out. Smokers need to eat this. It is truly amazing and delicious.
There is nothing I love more in autumn than cinnamon. It has such a bold flavor that, when paired with vanilla and milk, turns into happiness and joy.

- 3 tablespoons chia seeds, black or white
- 1½ tablespoons sugar

- Stir together all ingredients in a small bowl; refrigerate overnight or until it reaches your desired thickness, stirring occasionally.
