Gingerbread Chia Pudding

This Weight-Loss Breakfast Tastes Like a Gingerbread Man

If you're obsessed with overnight oats, but getting a little tired of them, then you must try overnight chia pudding. It offers up more fiber, which means it just might fill you up even longer than your usual jar of oats. It also has a pudding-like consistency, so it might feel more decadent to dip your spoon into this bowl.
