Did you hear the news?
When I first arrived in the US, the very first show I ever watched on TV was the Emeril cooking show on Food Network. It was quickly followed up by 30 Minute Meals with Rachel Ray. I’ve watched shows from Sandra Lee, Sara Moulton, Bobby Flay, Paula Deen and Ree Drummond, to name just a few. Tell me the name of the Food Network show, and I’ve seen it!
I love the Food Network! Some of my favorite chefs of all time are on that network and they are not only sharing their love of food, they are showing you how to cook in a relaxed and inspiring way.
And guess what? I love food! I love to cook! And I want to teach you how to cook in a relaxed and inspiring way too!
So, just in case you haven’t heard, I am hosting my very own LIVE cooking show on my FB group, Get Nourished with Renata! I’ll be cooking live from my kitchen every Wednesday at 1 pm CST. If there’s a recipe that you want me to cook and walk you through, let me know! I wanna cook recipes that you wanna learn!

A quick and easy dessert that is delicious and healthy! High in protein, fiber and omega-3's, this pudding can also be a great make-ahead breakfast!
- 1/3 cup chia seeds
- 1 to 1-1/4 cups coconut milk, can substitute for any milk you like
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 scoop your favorite Vanilla Protein Powder
- Additional sweetener, to taste
In a large bowl, add the chia seeds, 1 cup coconut milk, cocoa powder and protein powder.
Stir thoroughly till all the powders are fully dissolved and well combined.
If you feel like the mixture is very thick, way more than a pudding consistency, add in the remaining 1/4 cup of coconut milk.
Taste and add more sweetener, if desired.
Divide into 4 small storage containers or individual servings dishes, cover and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. The chia seeds will absorb the coconut milk and create a thick and creamy pudding.
Garnish with fresh berries, a sprinkling of coconut or a few shavings of chocolate. Enjoy!
