Breakfast-in-a-Jar Mango Chia Pudding

We have another recipe from the wonderful Nadia Felsch, nutritionist-to-be, whole foods expert and magazine columnist.

This chia pudding is a seasonal favourite that's the perfect tote-to-work breakfast or after-dinner snack. It’s refined sugar free, with the only sweetness coming from fresh fruit, and is packed with vitamins and fibre. Also, chia seeds contain tryptophan, a precursor of serotonin (aka the chemical that boosts your mood and helps to increase and regulate melatonin, the sleep hormone.)
