I am so addicted to chia seeds.  These little seeds are antioxidant powerhouses, packed with fiber and omega 3 fatty acids.  I like to add chia seeds to my diet whenever I can, and today, I wanted to share a super yummy, Chia Seeds and Berries Dessert.  This dessert requires no baking or cooking, just a little time =).

IMG_1937To make this Chia Seeds and Berries Dessert, Prepare chia seeds by soaking them in water for a few hours in a refrigerator.  I typically use the ratio of 1/2 cup of chia seeds to 1 cup of water.
