“There is no point in keeping up with the Joneses if they’re going someplace you don’t want to go.” Michael Hyatt
This is a three thumbs up recipe. It contains good stuff, is easy to make, and tastes like happiness. It also contains chia seeds. These are little magic seeds with a whole bunch going for them. For instance …
Chia seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, which, can help bring down inflammation in the body. They are a healthy fat and can keep insulin levels stable and prevent mindless snacking, both of which are important for maintaining a healthy weight. So, the problem for me has been – how do I get these seeds into my eating plan? No, I’m not too enthused about chewing a mouthful of seeds. Voila! Chia pudding!
can of coconut milk, not lo-fat
1/3 cup chia seeds
1/2 t pumpkin pie seasoning
pinch of salt
Combine all of the ingredients. I did this in a tall, wide-mouthed jar using my immersible blender stick. Put this in the fridge and let it sit overnight. I made this in the morning and counted evening as long enough to pass for an overnight.
Yes, I got out a holiday plate and set this whole thing up all by myself!
Full disclosure – it was in the evening, the end of my overnight, I remembered that I forgot to add the salt. I looked outside and saw that the earth was still spinning on its axis. Disaster averted!
Another disclosure – I did not immediately find my pumpkin pie seasoning but found that a combination of 4 t cinnamon, 2 t ground ginger, 1 t ground clove, and stop right there or add 1/2 t nutmeg. As I was gathering these ingredients I found my pumpkin pie seasoning. Life is good!
