Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding

Yesterday started and ended with affirmations that life is truly beautiful. We’re always moving from one place to the next, filling up even our days off with attending a birthday brunch followed up with meeting a friend for lunch and then deciding you’re going to make 200 cookies for your work that night. It’s so cliche, but we need to take a second to stop and smell the roses. Take a personal day to unwind.

I started off my morning with my Yogi Tea and the reminder I am beautiful, I am bountiful, I am blissful.

I took some “me” time and checked out a local pottery painting place.

They’ll be out of the kiln by next Tuesday but they’re far from perfect! I guess I’ll have to go back and practice again ;)

Dinner was pizza! We usually save Fridays for Pizza Friday but with Thanksgiving this week we decided to celebrate early.

I added caramelized onions and chickpeas to my side, chicken to his and topped with BBQ sauce and a Mexican blend of cheeses.

Before

After

We bought the garlic & herb crust from Trader Joe’s and it crisped up perfectly! I’ve had trouble with their whole wheat in the past so we may just stick to this.

I know it seems like a weird combination of flavors but it works – try it out!

Since we only used the chickpeas for half of the pizza I decided to roast the remaining few.

Olive Oil, Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder & Paprika – Baked at 425 degrees for 30 minutes. Warning: These are addictive.

Dessert was also weird. Maybe I’m just weird?

But it tasted good! Dessert without added sugar and preservatives always gets a W in my book.

Pumpkin Pie Chia Seed Pudding

Ingredients:

2tbsp White Chia Seeds
1/2 cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
1 tsp Agave Nectar
1 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Honey Graham cracker

Directions:

Mix everything (besides graham cracker) in bowl.
Refrigerate for 3 or more hours.
Crush 1/2 of your graham cracker into the pudding and use the other half for scooping.

Is there a better way to end a day than with a healthy (great tasting) dessert and a beautiful sunset?

Make today’s workout AMAZING so you can enjoy tomorrow’s food  feast without feeling guilty.

QUESTIONS: What weird combinations of food do you enjoy?
