I make this lentil salad all the time! I’m actually surprised I haven’t posted it yet, as I usually make it once a month or so. It is one of my favorite things to make at the beginning of the week and keep in the fridge for lunches throughout the week. It is full of flavor and tastes delicious on it’s own, or pilled over a bed of greens. I love topping it with sliced avocado and roasted pumpkin seeds. I actually usually skip the feta and it is still delicious! Although if I could tolerate more dairy I would definitely use it, because I love the stuff.
I usually do pretty good eating a healthy breakfast and planning healthy dinners. But when it comes to lunch, sometimes I end up eating random snacks that aren’t the healthiest. This leaves me hungry and prone to make poor food choices around 3pm! I like having things like this that are quick, healthy, and easy to throw together when lunch time rolls around. It makes it easier to stop and eat something real!
I have been a little chia-crazed lately! This chocolate chia seed custard might just be my favortie chia seed creation yet. It is creamy and decadent, but full of wholesome ingredients. It tastes as rich and delicious as any dairy-based chocolate pudding . It is sweetened only with dates and a little maple syrup. Like my Banana Chia Seed Custard, this custard healthy enough to eat for breakfast!
I love the texture of chia seeds in pudding. Chia seeds are also so good for you! They are full of fiber, omega-3s, protein, and many trace nutrients. They leave you feeling full and satisfied, making this a great on-to-go breakfast. I love making chia puddings the night before and having them waiting for me in the fridge the next morning. This chia pudding also fits the ticket when I’ve craving something sweet and chocolaty at the end of the day. I like serving these with a dollop of coconut milk whipped cream and dark chocolate shavings. They would also be divine with bananas, berries, or toasted nuts!
