Last week I posted on Insta stories that I am eating clean for the rest of the year. I am cutting sugars, unnecessary carbs, sodium and binging only on protein and fiber-rich food. Part of my diet includes a strict everyday breakfast. Nothing beats a fast and healthy breakfast for me than Chia pudding. It only takes 1 minute to mix almond milk and chia seeds together before bed and I have an instant breakfast ready in the morning.

Chia pudding is very simple. It doesn’t require a recipe. Mix 3 tablespoons chia seed per cup of any milk, refrigerate or leave it out overnight. Next morning, top it with your choice of fruits and voila! you have your instant healthy breakfast ready.

I use unsweetened almond milk, but any milk would work. You can also blend fruits if you want your pudding to be sweeter. See above picture where I blended Kiwi instead of adding pieces.
