Honey Mustard Sauce (Two Ways)

I love honey mustard. I used to think it was only good for one thing: dip for chicken strips. Boy was I wrong!When I perfected my recipe for homemade mustard, I knew that I had to create a sweet & tangy version stat. Not only was it so stinkin' simple to make but I've discovered that it is amazing on baked or grilled chicken. I also blend it up with avocado oil to make a delicious dressing for salads and coleslaw.

Chia pudding is my go-to breakfast right now. It needs to be made the night before which means all I have to do in the morning is open the jar and grab a spoon.For a mom of three kids under 4 years old, mornings can be hectic! It's too easy to get caught up in everything that needs to be done and forget to feed myself, so having breakfast ready to eat is super helpful!
