This week I started back on my Macro tracking. I wanted to share my favorite meal prep recipes that keep me on track. They are super tasty and very nutritious and fit right into your numbers. Today I'm sharing my favorite Chia Seed Pudding recipe. When I first made Chia Pudding I was underwhelmed, it was bland and I needed something to spice it up. Going on a diet or eating healthier doesn't have to be boring. Make it interesting and tasty and you're 10x more likely to stick to your weight loss goals.
I also LOVE any recipe that requires PB&J. I didn't want the extra fat with regular peanut butter, powdered peanut butter is the best thing since sliced bread! Don't you agree? If you haven't tried, get your little booty to the grocery store right now. You NEED this in your life.
Don't forget to save this recipe to 📌 Pinterest!
