Make Ahead Blueberry Chia Seed Pudding

20140403-182000.jpg

 

Chia seeds soaked overnight in milk turn into a quick, eco-friendly, clean-eating breakfast that’s low in calories and full of protein & fiber to get me through the morning without the urge to nibble on unhealthy snacks at work. I try to limit going into the break room at my job because there’s almost always sandwiches, cookies, muffins and other calorie-rich treats left over from sales trainings, meetings, celebrations and the like.

I make my chia pudding in a glass jar with a sealable lid so I can take it to work if I don’t have time to eat it at home. I make my chia seed pudding in glass just in case I decide to warm it a little in the microwave. I don’t microwave in plastic. Do you?

Saving my health starts at the beginning of the day and it starts with breakfast.
