RECIPE: Simple Chia Pudding That's Simply Divine


Simplicity in the divine. That has been a theme in my life as of late, during this most recent period of change. I have found some great successes in all areas of my being without much complicated calculation. Life, in a word, has been kept quite "simple."

Now, simple is not the same as boring. Oh no. In this particular use of the word, simple simply means without confusion, without over-stimulation, and moving with ease.

And I think I can use the same definition to describe my next recipe. It's low maintenance, quick to assemble, and pretty hands off. Oh, and did I mention it tastes divine?
