Let’s talk chia seeds. These mysterious little delights are packed with antioxidants, high in fiber and deliver a good source of magnesium, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids. Not to mention, one serving has 4 grams of protein. I am not a nutritionalist, but I can say with confidence that chia seeds are your diet friend if you’re looking to slim down. Throw some onto your salad, in your smoothie… OR make:
CHIA SEED PUDDING:
1 cup almond milk
3 tsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
Add ingredients to a sealed Tupperware container and shake vigorously. Refrigerate overnight (preferably for 2 nights). The chia seeds will expand in the mixture.
**Optional add in for thickness, protein and nutrients: 1/2 scoop vega chocolate plant based protein powder.
To get the chocolate flavor without vega protein, add unsweetened cocoa powder or use chocolate flavored almond milk.
Sub almond milk for kefir to increase probiotic intake and make the pudding a bit thicker.
