Chia Seed Pudding

Do you ever tire of eating yogurt or an apple with almond butter as a “healthy” snack? Chia seen pudding is embarrassingly easy to make and if you prepare it a home you’ll save a shit ton of money, won’t eat unnecessary added foods, and you’ll use less plastic.

There are a lot of benefits to eating chia seeds. The little buggers are antioxidants, full of fiber, and have the miracle “omega - 3 fatty acids”. A potential side effect is that the seeds can potentially get stuck in your teeth. This shouldn’t create any long term issues as long as you brush your teeth.




You’ll need a few re-usable containers. I like WECK jars because they are cute.


  • 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds

  • 1.5 Cups Almond Milk


  • Vanilla

  • Cinnamon

  • Honey

  • Fruit

I find that 2 tbsp chia seeds to 1.5 cups liquid is a great ratio. This is where it gets tricky. Place 2 tbsp chia seeds in a container with 1.5 cups almond milk, stir, seal and pop it in the fridge. It’s a good idea to shake the container a few hours later. That’s it! Add optional ingredients just before eating!

Banana & Oatmeal Cookies

It’s only normal to have a sweet tooth or craving from time to time and it’s entirely possible to enjoy a cookie without butter, added sugar, and other crazy stuff that makes you feel guilty. At minimum all you need is rolled oats, a banana and an oven. A non-stick baking sheet and parchment paper will help too.


  • 1 Banana

  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats


  • Vanilla

  • Cinnamon

  • Sour Cherries

  • Chocolate Chips

  • Nuts

  • Whatever floats your boat

Heat your oven to 350 degrees. Mash your banana with a fork, a ripe banana is best. If you have a food processor use it to make a coarse flour with the oats. It’s not necessary to make a little four but I think it makes a better cookie.

Combine the banana and oatmeal. A one banana to one cup oatmeal seems to be the perfect ratio. Add any other ingredient you choose.

Shape the “dough” into cookies and place on a parchment paper lines baking sheet (it’s the best for non-stick and easy clean up). Bake for 15 minutes and enjoy shortly after removing the cookies from the oven. You can save them for a day or so but honestly they are best fresh. Only make what you need!

Sometimes it is okay to enjoy a little dessert. Enjoy these.
