Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding

Pumpkin Chia Pudding
Pie is always a good idea. Isn’t that a line from a movie? But it’s true!Typically though, “pie” means sugar, dairy, gluten, and a lot of calories. I remember the “coma-like” feeling engendered by holiday pies. Gosh they were good going down, but later I felt exhausted and had a headache, not to mention an upset stomach. Perhaps too much information…Let’s get back to this pie – it’s delicious, creamy, sweet and rich, without any refined sugar, and won’t have you feeling the “post-pie” blues later on. Chia seeds, which bring the thickness to the pie’s center, are a super food in their own right. They are very low calorie, yet full of omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, protein, and minerals like magnesium. Quick tip: you must grind the chia seeds to extract their fatty acid goodness. Pumpkin is a healthy vegetable; it’s too bad we forget about it for most of the year. It’s very low in calories yet high in beta carotene (which converts to vitamin A) and boasts a long list of other vitamins and minerals that it provides.
