Happy New Year!!! Feeling extremely excited about 2018 along with this month in particular as Nutrition by RD is approaching its 1st birthday :)

Kicking off the year with one of my favorite quick and easy breakfast staples: chia pudding! I'm a big fan of it's convenience (I make mine ahead of time as part of the weeks meal prep) as well as all the nourishment it offers!  Chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, protein, iron, calcium and magesium.

Amy & Brian Naturals asked me to develop a recipe using their coconut water and I immediately thought why not add it as base for my chia pudding. Coconut water makes a flavorful and hydrating ingredient addition! Plus the cinnamon and coconut flavor combo in particular turned out amazing and will definitely become a new favorite of mine! Check out the full recipe below to try it out for yourself :)

  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
