Am I the only one that got a little out of control during the holiday season? Cookies, champagne, cookies, fattening side dishes, cookies, fattening main dishes, cookies, cookies, cookies.

I know it’s a little cliché that everyone starts eating healthy foods again as soon as January rolls around.  And yes, absolutely, we should be eating like that year-round. But I for one am happy to have a little motivation and reminder to get my butt back on track…and hopefully that same butt that is getting back on track will also firm up and decrease in size as a bonus.

And yes, you’ll be seeing more healthy recipes than cookies here – at least this month. But truthfully, that’s pretty indicative of both this site as well as the way we eat. Because, after all, we do eat the food I make. And the sweets usually get sent off to work with Ben so that I don’t eat all of them.

Enter chia pudding. Weird stuff, I know. Honestly, I almost didn’t blog this. But then my family members tried it and they actually really loved it. All three of them. Which pretty much never happens.

I love the flavors of this chia pudding recipe – sweetened with maple and flavored with warm spicy cinnamon, this is the perfect little treat for the time of winter that just drags on and on and on.

I made this with skim milk, but you could definitely do this with other types of milk – whole milk would make for a slightly more decadent treat.

Enjoy!
