Guys!! I recently discovered this amazingly delicious snack. This is seriously my new favourite snack adapted from Mike Dolce's The Dolce Diet.

This past month I've been on super-charge goal mode. In 12-weeks I'll be celebrating the big 3-0, and earlier in the year I started with the goal to be as lean and super fit by the time I turned 30. Long story short, travelling around and living a nomadic lifestyle has made this goal slightly hard to reach. When I started the year, we were living in Costa Rica. It was surprisingly very easy to maintain a good, clean eating habit and workout regimen. Without next stop being Portland, OR things got easier and easier. Then we went on a cross-country road trip. I found myself running more and more at hotel gyms and hiking in National Parks. But, then we went to Europe.

While we were travelling around, it seemed like this goal never even existed. I intentionally lost sight of my goal. (Common' who would have said 'NO' to Italian and Spanish wines and copious amounts of never ended Iberian ham? Yea... didn't think so. #YOLO) I knew that this was only going to be short lived and once returning back in the U.S. things were going to be a bit more intense. It's been about 6 weeks from returning back and eating clean and one month of developing a consistent workout regimen. My meals have been very clean and healthy, and I've shared with you many of my meals on here as on Instagram.

Ove the last six weeks I've grown to love chia seeds more and more. There are so many reasons to love chia seeds. Chia seeds offer an overwhelming nutrient profile ounce for ounce. They contain more potassium than a banana, they are fiber filled, offer more iron than spinach and are a good source of Omega-3’s.

To make this delicious snack, I used 1 cup of Siggi's Icelandic yoghurt (it has 15g protein per cup), 1 tablespoon chia seeds, a dash of Stevia and a serving of fresh fruit.

2 tablespoon chia seeds
Stevia, to taste
