Homemade vs. Store Bought:
In the past, whenever I thought of chocolate pudding, the kid in me always thought of the individual packs loaded with sugar, preservatives, and artificial ingredients. It's scary to think that if you search online for the ingredients in pre-packaged pudding, it's not even listed on their website! What are they trying to hide? By making your own pudding, you know it's filled with real and whole foods that nourish your body and will keep you feeling full and satisfied (and I promise you that this pudding tastes so much better)!
