I love chia pudding!! This is absolutely one of my favorite breakfasts.
Summer time is just great for this super light and yet healthy breakfast or dessert.
Chia seeds are now everywhere, in smoothies, oatmeal, desserts, fresca water ……. and much more.
Chia seeds are considered to be hydrophilic, meaning they can absorb large amounts of water quickly. They can hold 10 times their weight in water making them a great enhancer in hydrating our bodies, a valuable tool for athletes or anyone looking to improve their day to day performance and endurance.
Why Chia is good for us:
Chia seeds are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, with nearly five grams in a one-ounce serving.These fats are important for brain health
Great source of antioxidants
Chia seeds also make a great source of protein
They are also great for athletes because the gelly chiacan hydrate the body.
Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber, with a whopping 10 grams in only 2 tablespoons.
Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain 18 percent of the DRI for calcium, 35 percent for phosphorus, 24 percent for magnesium and about 50 percent for manganese.
Chia seeds contain no gluten or grains.
