Good morning, all! Do I have the most awesome light, easy to make, totally tasty and super healthy breakfast (and/or snack) for you. Chia pudding. Never heard of chia seeds? Its time you did. Chia seeds are AWESOME for you. They provide your body with (to name a few compelling benefits): omega 3 fatty acids, are rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, calcium, and iron to your body. Plus, they can reduce risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and lower overall mortality risk.
How bout that for a super food? 😉

Ultimately, she identified the similar tasting peppers: orange and green, and yellow and red, only she reversed her selections within those two pairs. I was impressed overall after being skeptical in her ability to distinguish the peppers by color.
So, onward with what you’ll need to make this breakfast dish:
