Chia Pudding: The Verdict

Has anyone tried chia pudding? It is no more than chia seeds soaked in milk (or vegan-friendly nut milk) overnight with additional flavoring (vanilla, maple syrup...) and toppings (yogurt, granola, nuts...), if desired. After hearing about all of the health benefits and how easy it is to make for a quick breakfast or a healthy snack, it was, of course, high up there on my list of things to try.

Since it has been sufficiently long enough since I posted anything worth reading, I’ll share the who, what, where, and ... Continue Reading

Raw-curious

Updated, December 2014: as we are approaching the start of yet another new year, full of new resolutions for healthier, cleaner eating, I thought that this would be an excellent post to reflect on and feature. Please enjoy! If you are a personal friend or happened to catch some of my previous posts, you already know that once upon a time I had a month-long marketing internship at a raw food company. Despite what wise cracks I might have made in private, my experience wasn't all bad. Working there ... Continue Reading
