I have gone and bought the singular most bizarre thing I have ever bought in a food store, and that includes the time I went looking for mace.
That's right. I bought chia seeds.
|What ARE you??|

And that recipe...is this. Chocolate-Cherry Chia Pudding. Sounds so friendly and harmless in the title, right? It claims to be 'sugar-free, gluten-free, vegan-friendly and clean.'
I mean, so's my cat, but I wouldn't want to eat her.
But, the blogging pinteresting lady who posted this SWORE on the graves of her ancestors that even her "difficult" husband who is "allergic" to green foods thought this recipe was, and I quote, "actually good."
