Diet - the kinds of food that a person, animal, or community habitually eats.
What we choose and whether or not we’ll like it, is a matter of perception and mindset.
I didn’t like healthy alternatives like this in the beginning, but now I Love it! Once the sugar was out of my system, the sugar and fat filled treats I used to enjoy, taste terrible!
Here’s one of my favorites!
Raspberry Chia Parfait
* 6 Tbsp Organic Chia Seeds
* 2 cups organic Almond milk
* 6 large squares organic dark chocolate (at least 60% cacao)
* ½ cup fresh organic raspberries + 6 to decorate
1. Place raspberries and 1 cup of Almond milk in blender and puree until smooth. Pour the mixture into a glass jar and add 3 Tbsp. of organic chia seeds. Stir well with a spoon, or if your jar has a lid, shake well until all of the seeds are evenly covered in the raspberry liquid. Cover with a tight lid and and place in the refrigerator.
2. Place 4 chocolate squares into a microwave safe bowl and microwave in 30 second increments, stirring in between, until chocolate is fully melted. If a microwave isn’t available, melt the chocolate over low heat on the stove. Be sure to place chocolate in a heatproof bowl that fits snugly over a pot of barely simmering water (or put the bowl directly in a wide, shallow skillet of barely simmering water). Stir occasionally until the chocolate is melted and smooth; remove it from the heat. Add 1 cup of Almond milk and whisk until combined.
3. Once the chocolate mixture is cool, pour it into a glass jar and add 3 Tbsp. of chia seeds. Stir well with a spoon, or if your jar has a lid, shake well until all of the seeds are evenly covered in the chocolate liquid.
4. Keep the raspberry and chocolate chia seed mixtures in the fridge overnight for at least 4 hours.
5. Layer the chocolate and raspberry chia pudding into 2 small dessert glasses.
6. Chop the remaining 2 squares of dark chocolate and use to decorate the chia pudding. Top with 2-3 fresh raspberries and enjoy! at Vancouver, Washington
