Easy Coconut Chia Pudding

I am forever a fan of simple things. Honestly, the simpler the better. This past week I’ve been looking after my aunt’s dogs and living in her house while she’s on vacation with her family and it’s been a blast. There is something very strange and fun about living on your own (even if only for a short time). Since it’s just me here the fridge isn’t exactly over-stocked, but I do have my staples on hand: almond butter, hummus, sauerkraut, fresh veg and a big ol’ jar of coconut chia pudding. I’ve been really in to meal prepping items in bulk recently and this chia pudding has become one of my “go to’s”. 

Despite it being summer vacation I am still pretty busy with work and trying to fit in time to spend with my friends, so having easy food on hand is super great. This recipe can be changed up and added to. I’ve also listed some topping suggestions below to help get your creative juices flowing. Happy meal prep!
