Enriching your practice starts with your mind, connects with your soul and ends with your body. With that said, we love discovering yummy recipes to fuel a healthy and happy lifestyle. 

Chia seeds. Unless you've used them before, you may be scratching your head right now. Yes, we're talking about the same seeds used in the classic Chia Pet® but, who knew they're absolutely delicious? They're the new must-have superfood and with so many health benefits, they're here to stay! Here are some of the benefits we can't get enough of:

• Rich in Omega-3 Fatty Acids
• High in fiber; Two tablespoons has 1/3 of your recommended daily fiber intake.
• Gluten-free.
• Keeps you feeling full for a long amount of time thanks to fiber and protein.

With only four ingredients, this recipe will by far, be the easiest thing you'll ever make. The pudding makes a good base for any flavor profile you want.
