Chia seed pudding

If you've never tried chia seeds they are definitely something to check out. Chia seeds are the number one plant source of amino acids and have a great amount of fiber in the small amount you get in a serving. They hydrate with whatever you add them to, so they're awesome in smoothies and juice. You can actually find them in a juice product at Costco.
  I purchased my seeds at Trader Joe's and on the back of the packet there was a recipe for pudding. Texturewise it goes down like tapioca. If you chew it there's a bit of a crunch. I've included pictures of the seeds after they hydrate, as soon as I mixed the pudding, and again when it was ready.
