My parents are truly my first Valentines.

There were no gifting like a card or bouquet of roses — either we spent time together, making memories by dining out or noshing on mom’s celebratory cookies.

Best Valentine memories ever.

Strawberry Chia Pudding | @KiranTarun
To continue our Valentine’s Day foodie theme, I present you with this strawberry chia pudding. I love breakfast that is so easy to make the night before. And before you are even fully awake the next morning, its all ready.

A healthy breakfast on Valentine’s Day is crucial when you know there’s chocolate swirled meringue and strawberry gulab jamun that needs to be devoured as well.

Tough love 😉

I did not know I could prepare a pudding mixing chia seeds and milk the night before (my first attempts at chia seeds based pudding haven’t been successful). I look forward to trying this recipe.
p.s. your memories of the first Valentine are a rare sweet thing.

I like how you broke up the chia pudding with that little ribbon of honey yogurt! So yum! And so pretty!

It’s like a parfait. Thanks Shashi 🙂

I’ve never made a drink with chia yet, but I heard that it swells into a pudding-like consistency – or it becomes thicker. Add to the fact that chia are considered healthy. Can’t wait to experiment (and taste) chia!
