If you have a sweet tooth, chia pudding, is a quick dessert to be made that is relatively low in calories but it is packed full of nutrients and health benefits. I love Chia pudding because it gives me the sweetness I desire while helping me feel fuller longer than a traditional dessert because of the relatively large amount of fiber and protein. Since I am a marathoner, I am always looking for plant ­based ways to fortify my bones and since chia seeds tend to have more calcium per gram than most dairy products­­ it's a winner.

Enjoy this seductively sweet substitution for your favorite dessert. Your taste buds and waistline will thank you.
