Do you feel like eating breakfast that is high in Protein, Fibre and Calcium? If the answer is yes, you should be having a delicious chia pudding every morning!
To add to the list of great things chia seeds bring to the table:
They are stuffed with Antioxidants which is, as we know, great for your skin and cells and chia seeds have as much Omega-3 in 2 tablespoons as 100 g of salmon!
Good Morning Goodness!
A little more info on chia
Typically, chia seeds are small, black/brown ovals shaped seeds. Chia seeds are hydrophilic and can absorb up to 12 times their weight in liquid when soaked. Soaked seeds develop a distinctive gel texture which I choose to call pudding.
Apparently, if you make a gel out of ground chia seeds you can use that to replace as much as 25% of the egg and oil content in cakes – I need to try that one!
