I’m suddenly obsessed with chia seeds, I’ve made this pudding 3 times this week and even J said it’s the best he’s ever had. Much to my surprise he gobbled up nearly all of it the first time. I’ve never taken him to be a superfood kinda guy, though he is my superman…swoon. The things I love about these little seeds is the satisfying pop they provide which is hard to come by elsewhere. The kiwi gives an addition textural orgasm and together, the berries, the coconut, all that goodness just makes you feel like a million bucks. I was so inspired by these dainty seeds that I researched the heck out of ’em and wrote a post devoted solely to their benefits, check it out here.

I’ve been writing a lot for different websites surrounding health and nutrition. It’s really fun and I learn at least twenty new things every day. It inspires me to know that people are thirsty for knowledge in this realm. I think it’s safe to say the majority of people are becoming disillusioned by big pharma’s shortcomings. We’re only now seeing the implications of massive scale agriculture, pesticide use and commercial meat production. I’m still blown away by the fact that the first ‘supermarket’ only arrived on the scene in 1950.
