So this week, instead of eating 3 big meals and a snack, I’ve started eating 5-6 smaller-sized portions throughout the day.  However, a lot of meal plans that have you eating frequent small meals usually have a pretty savory meal for meal #2.  I’m not really down with chix and brocc at 10:30am, so instead, I’ve been having this Pumpkin Chia Pudding.  It’s really easy and with the vanilla whey protein, there’s no need to add any sweeteners.
