RECIPE FRIDAY: Chia Seed Pudding

Since I mentioned the nutritional value of Chia seeds in my post last Tuesday, I thought it appropriate to share a Chia seed recipe. This is great for anyone watching sugar intake or eating gluten-free. Chia seed are available at your local health food store.

This pudding recipe is shared from the Chia Seed Recipe site at http://www.chiaseedrecipes.com/. Please check it out for more information on Chia seeds and how to use them.
