It’s autumn; time to eat some healthy comfort food!!! I try to eat the seasonal veggies and fruits; cheaper and fresher than eating strawberries all year. I love pears; they are not a super food and don’t contain the most vitamin C but gives you sufficient vitamins and minerals anyway. They are juicy, fresh and full of fibers and go very well with chocolate. The chocolate will give you the antioxidants and the most important dopamine. The dopamine increases your sense of happiness and ability to concentrate; that is what we need in these dark days!! So enjoy this lovely easy chocolate breakfast!!!

Stir all the seed and make sure that you distribute the seeds evenly through the mixture. Put the jar in the refrigerator and chill it overnight.
Next morning; take the glasses and start putting some slices of pears on the side of the glass. Press them a bit so they will stuck to the glass. Then fill half of the glasses with the chia pudding, till half way. Then take the chopped pears and share among the two glasses.
