One of the most difficult parts of any fitness journey is changing the way you think about food. Cutting certain foods out of your diet and incorporating new ones is a challenge for many people, so don't feel alone if you also struggle with this. Here at AstroFlav we want to help you along your fitness journey by providing you with delicious (and healthy) recipes that will keep you dedicated to your fitness journey while allowing you to enjoy what you eat. This week's Healthier You recipe is for a strawberry chia pudding parfait. We like to put a few scoops of our collagen protein in the chia seed mix for a delicious boost of protein. We hope you love this recipe as much as we do!
