Friday's Fixin's: Blueberry Chia Pudding

Recently, I had the Silver Lined fortune to meet a culinary nutritionist and wellness coach by the name of Melissa Costello. She is super-fab. Melissa teaches private cooking lessons and works with people one-on-one and in groups  to help them learn how to embrace a healthy lifestyle through plant-based eating…my kinda’ gal!

I especially love the fact that she brings 3 month wellness programs into corporations to lower absenteeism and insurance costs. How great is that?!?

Melissa generously agreed to share this delish recipe with The Silver Pen. I found myself inhaling this…just sayin’…
