I decided to embark on a 30 day detox to begin the year 2017. I decided to do this for a couple of reasons.
- I’m a sugar addict.
- I’m a coffee addict.
- I wanted to see if I would feel better because that’s what I read
- I wanted to see if I could actually do it.
So this little detox entails eliminating everything I love. Caffine, refined sugar, gluten, anything fun. But I can do anything for 30 days, right?
In my search of expanding my food choices, I came across chia pudding. It has quickly become one of my breakfast fav’s. It is super easy, it has a ton of texture, I can add nuts and fruit, and I make it in a mason jar. It makes me feel so….I don’t know….trendy?? So I feel like you need to be trendy too – mason jar included. So here’s how you make it.
Chia Seed Pudding
3/4 cup of almond milk (or regular milk)
3-4 Tbsp of chia seeds
Put this in a mason jar and shake well. Then refrigerate overnight
In the morning, stir or shake to mix and use your add ins.
My favorite combo is: Strawberries, unsweetened coconut flakes, and pecans and a little bit of coconut sugar (a great replacement to refined sugar)
You can also use: blue berries, raspberries, blackberries, any nuts, honey, agave, vanilla, bananas – honestly, it’s limitless. And you can forego the mason jar and eat it out of a dessert cup!
If you try it – come back here and tell me how you liked it and what you added!
