Coconut Chia Pudding

Happy Tuesday Friends!

In my Nutrition class today, we learned that chia Seeds are a powerful superfood providing us with crucial omega-3 fatty acids. Being a vegetarian, we often lack in omega-3 acids which are mostly abundant in fish. Omega-3 helps increase high-density lipoprotein or “the good cholesterol”.

In this recipe I paired chia seeds with coconut milk, making a great combination of healthy fats and proteins.

As I was putting together this recipe, I struggled with whether I wanted to call it a dessert or a breakfast. It is really filling, similar to oatmeal but at the same time it has a sweeter side like a pudding. Wait…..

Who am I to categorize this pudding? Dear, little pudding, you can be a dessert AND a breakfast it that’s what you want to be.

I figure that I am very much like this little pudding. We both want it all.

I struggle with being very indecisive. I would like to call it “I want it all” syndrome. I love lots of things. I love nature, I love cities, I love people, I love solitude, I love music, I love silence. I love so many opposite but amazing things. At times, I feel like I am all over the place. This gets even worse when I have to make decisions that affect me and people around me.

If you a indecisive person like myself, the phrase “so what do you want to do or what do you want to eat tonight?”, is not really a question but an invitation for anxiety.  I’d rather do what other people want and risk not liking it, than have the opposite happen. Can’t decide if this is a good trait or not. 😉

Cheers to all the indecisive people out there, this bressert is for you. Enjoy this little yummy thing at whatever time of the day your heart desires . Nobody will judge you.
