Chia Seed Pudding with Honey Pecans Have you ever had chia seeds before? I love adding them to smoothies, salads, and baked goods. But I especially LOVE making them into a super tasty Chia Seed Pudding. When chia seeds come in to contact with a liquid, they turn gelatinous. This makes for a perfectly healthy little pudding.

Maple Balsamic Tempeh Bites Tempeh is one of my favourite plant-based proteins. I love that one serving boasts 16 grams of protein and 5 grams of fibre! If you’re not familiar with tempeh, it’s made through a fermentation process that binds the soybeans into a cake form.
