Raw Warrior Pudding #BacktoSchool


This week Cynthia of Feeding Big asked us share some back-to-school recipes. Yes, back-to-school. It's hard to believe that summer vacation is almost over. Sad, but true. Grateful for our annual summer camping trip. We're ten years in to a ten-day trek around Northern California. This year, we went down the Eastern Sierras, camping in Lassen National Forest and Inyo National Forest. So darn picturesque.

Jake and I love creating these memories for our boys. It makes their eight-week summers seem a little less short!

Okay, back to the reason for this post...some great lunch box ideas from my blogging friends.  

Warrior Pudding

Chia puddings are a great, make-ahead breakfast. And I love that they are so versatile.

Why is it called 'warrior pudding'? Because, as my bag of organic whole chia seeds - tagline "Aztec Superfood" - explains: "The chia seed was eaten by Aztec for strength and was a main staple food along with corn and beans."

Ingredients

  • 1/2 C chia seeds
  • 2 C milk
  • 1 T raw turbinado sugar
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground cardamom
  • ground nutmeg
  • ground ginger


Procedure
Place all of the ingredients and let it soak overnight. Serve as you would oatmeal - with fresh berries or bananas. I topped mine with diced fresh strawberries and raw sliced almonds.

  2. Wow, what a great summer you are having. Love the photos of the mountains. This warrior pudding looks great. I think anything that can be put in a pot and is ready the next day is great!
