Would you like this for breakfast? One of those rare occasions when a pudding is allowed in the morning. Or after a workout. Because chia seeds are AMAZINGLY good for you. Here is why. One serving (28g) contains:
- Dietary fiber (11g – 42% recommended daily value)
- Protein (4.4g – 9% RDV)
- Omega-3 fatty acids and Omega-6 fatty acids
- Calcium (77 mg – 18% RDV)
- Copper (0.1 mg – 3% RDV)
- Phosphorus (265 mg – 27% RDV)
- Potassium (44.8 mg – 1% RDV)
- Zinc (1.0 mg – 7% RDV)
Chia also contains essential fatty acids, mucin, strontium, Vitamins A, B, E, and D, and minerals including sulphur, iron, iodine, magnesium, manganese, niacin, thiamine, and they are a rich source of anti-oxidants.
How to make chia pudding:
- Soak 4 tablespoons of chia seeds in 200ml of nut milk of your choice (I love it with raw almond milk) for a minimum of 30 mins or overnight.
- Add extra milk if you prefer a runnier consistency
- Add kiwis, goji berries, hazelnuts and a tablespoon of hemp seeds
Chia seeds can be expensive if you buy them in small quantities. I purchased a 2kg bag online for about £10, so shop around. It doesn’t have to be expensive, so no excuses, go get some!
