To-go chia pudding

Chia seeds may be tiny, but they provide a lot of nutritional benefits. They're loaded with fiber, protein, calcium and omega-3-fatty acids.

But what's really the best thing about chia seeds (besides their nutritional value) is their ability to completely transform in size and volume. They soak in any form of liquid they're surrounded with by up to 10 times their weight.

Not only does this make chia seeds a great breakfast, a healthy snack during work or dessert, but it also means that they will help you stay hydrated and full longer.

Chia puddings are incredibly easy to make and perfect for meal prep as they keep well in the fridge.

Basically, you simply stir all ingredients together in a small bowl or large jar. Cover and place it in the fridge for at least six hours, or better over night. The longer you wait, the thicker the pudding will be.

Add the topping right before you eat it. Chia pudding is pure perfection if you add yogurt.
