Pinspiration: Chia Seed Pudding
If you haven’t joined Pinterest by now, you are missing out on life. Honestly. It is one of those things that I truly don’t know how I survived without it.
I love that I can find everything from style inspiration to cleaning tips to recipes. I could spend hours pinning things!
Which brings me to last night— I was trying to get a grocery list together and one of things I want to try to make is chia pudding, so I got on Pinterest to look up recipes.
I’m doing a weight-loss program through my doctor’s office which is helping me eat gluten-free (and fairly dairy-free too). However, I have been struggling to find things I can eat for breakfast.
I’m not someone who gets up early and fixes myself a full breakfast. I’m someone who needs to grab something out of the fridge and go because I slept until the last possible second so I only have just enough time to get ready and get out the door. I’ve tried and tried to be better about this, but I’ve come to accept the fact that it’s probably never going to happen…
Anywho, I mentioned this to my doctor and she suggested I try chia pudding because I can easily make it ahead of time and even put it in individual bowls so all I have to do is grab one and go.
So here I was perusing Pinterest looking for chia pudding recipes and my mouth was just watering…
Who knew there were so many chia pudding recipes?!
I think I’m going to try to make the Dark Chocolate one and the Banana Peanut Butter one (except I’ll substitute the regular milk for either coconut or almond milk and will probably use almond butter instead of peanut butter since that’s usually what I have in the house).
I’m saving that Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding recipe to make this Fall. I LOVE anything pumpkin flavored!
Which recipe sounds good to you? I’ll try to follow-up with how they turned out.
P.S. I’ve pinned all of these recipes to my “Simply Gluten-Free” board. You should check it out and feel free to follow me while you are there! 😉
