Raspberry & Fig Chia pudding (loaded up)



Raspberry and Fig Chia pudding (Loaded up)

Figs are officially in season! Yay! I love figs! Funny story- I was actually introduced to them a few years back by a friendly neighbor while dancing my face off at a music festival. Ever since I’ve scouted them out as the summer begins to end the fall sneaks its way up. They’re such a little treasure to enjoy and are full of rich natural sugars, fiber and magnesium. I absolutely adore figs because they’re sweet and I can incorporate them in so many meals. For example, today I created a raspberry fig chia pudding with the works. I added all sorts of good fats, vitamins, and fiber to keep me moving throughout the day. The figs and raspberry pair so well today in this rich energy supplying pudding. Chia pudding is perfect for any busy lifestyle because its quick, easy to make and lasts for up to a week. It pairs well with all sorts of yummy food and gives you energy to kick ass. Did I also mention its cheap? All in all, this treat is my go to when I know I’m going to have a busy week (So pretty much every week).
