5 Awesome Chia Pudding Recipes For Breakfast

 

Believe it or not, chia pudding is not solely reserved for dessert. In fact, you may be ahead of the game if you have been adding chia seeds to your morning routine. Chia seeds are fairly tasteless, but they are somewhat magical: they become gelatinous after being in liquid. Is chia pudding worth all the hype that is getting, though? Let’s find out.

 

Omega-3s:

People often turn to salmon or fish oil to get their omega-3 fatty acids, but chia seeds are incredibly rich in omega-3s. Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain the same percentage of omega-3s as four ounces of salmon. They are easier for your body to digest and they help to boost intellectual growth as well.

 

Protein & Calcium:

Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain about four grams of protein, but you also get a sufficient amount of calcium. The body needs calcium to maintain and build healthy bones, but calcium is also necessary for optimal nerve, muscle, and heart function.

 

Loaded With Fiber:

You can get 30% of your recommended daily intake of fiber by eating two tablespoons of chia seeds. A diet that is rich in fiber helps to keep your digestive system functioning optimally.
