Today I’m spending my day inside, covered up in comfy clothes and blankets. Yes you guessed it, this lady have managed to get a cold. How on earth I’ve gotten this considering how much vitamins and minerals I’m currently consuming is a mystery. However, I do actually easily get a cold. I’m a very cold person and I can sit in a room shivering while my boyfriend sits in a t-shirt and I’m freezing underneath a blanket. Why that is? You tell me.
So yesterday I decided to try making chia pudding. And oh my I am hooked! And I recommend for you to try it as well! Not only is it a perfect healthier dessert/breakfast/brunch option, chia seeds are very nutritious.
Here are some benefits for chia seeds:
1 serving (28g) has 11 grams of fiber! Which is great! Read more about fiber in a earlier blog post here.
And nearly all the carbs in chia seeds are fiber:
100g chia seeds: Carbs 42.1 g – Sugar ~ – Fiber 34.4 g
Good amount of protein
High in omega 3
Packed with antioxidants
High in magnesium, calcium and phosphorus which is important for bone health
So to make chia pudding you need 3 things:
1 part Chia seeds
4 parts Some sort of milk (coconut, almond, cow etc..)
Sweetener to taste (Honey, maple etc..)
Mix together, let it set for 10 min, mix again, cover up and refrigerate over night(or at least 2-3 hours). Top with fruit and/or nuts and enjoy!
If you made a big batch it can last covered up in the fridge for 4-5 days.
