The last place we want to be on a steamy summer weekend is in front of a hot stove, but a girl’s gotta eat and, if she’s lucky, maybe entertain a few friends. We paid a visit to our foodie friend Fernanda de la Puente and sampled her crowd-pleasing cool-down summer snack.
Armed with the belief that clean eating doesn’t need to involve more ingredients than a great outfit—or take longer than getting dressed—we asked Peruvian-born, New York-based holistic nutritionist Fernanda de la Puente for a few five-ingredients-or-less recipes. (As she put it, “food shouldn’t be stressful. The meal is a moment in time, even if it’s just breakfast alone.”) This month, she schooled us on the ingredient of the moment: chia seeds.
