High in healthy, anti-inflammatory Omega-3s and antioxidants, chia seeds can also help your body better absorb key vitamins. Together with almond milk and almond butter, chia seeds make this dessert a great option for a lung-healthy snack. This pudding recipe can be turned into a chocolate pudding by adding 2 Tbs. of cocoa powder and a pinch of cinnamon. Also, be sure to let the pudding recipe rest for several hours to ensure the chia seeds have enough time to soak.

- Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes; then, stir to make sure the seeds are evenly distributed.
- Cover and refrigerate for at least 8 hours to make a pudding.
