Chia Trumps All (seeds)

If you hadn’t heard it by now, chia seeds rock. Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, protein, calcium and fiber, these tiny pellets have antioxidant powers that will keep you satisfied and energized throughout the day. Because chia seeds and chia pudding are Paleo friendly, I decided to take a stab at making this deliciously nutty breakfast/snack/dessert in my own kitchen. Thanks to some tips from fellow blogger and Gator @wholefoodblog (Gaby Nunez), this recipe is my new go-to.
