Berry Love Chia Bowl

Love is in the air but I have an honest confession…

I can’t stand Valentine’s Day.  I refuse to celebrate it.   I don’t want flowers that have been marked up in price 300% or a teddy bear or chocolates shaped like hearts.  Well, ok I would take the chocolates because I never turn down chocolate, but you get what I’m saying.  

That doesn’t mean I don’t take full advantage using heart shaped cookie cutters on every healthy food item possible!  It also means making all the pink and red desserts I can whip up before it just gets annoying.

My love for anything chia is a well-known fact.  There is a 50/50 chance I will have chia seeds stuck in my teeth anytime you talk to me.  Chia pudding is on repeat in my house!  Loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and antioxidants, they are tiny but pack a powerful punch in the nutrition department.  

Chia is a great go-to for snack time.  When mixed with liquid, chia seeds swell and expand, becoming a thick, pudding-like texture.  When you eat them, they also expand in your intestinal tract, creating a sense of satiety and helping to keep you full for hours.

I created this Berry Love Chia Bowl to celebrate my love of chia during the month of love!  

I hope you LOVE it as much as BERRY much as I do.
