For the people who work out a lot or need a little more sustenance, chia pudding is an excellent meal option. It contains lots of protein, fiber, and healthy fats that help to keep you full for a long time. Eating chia pudding before a workout can provide you with enough fuel to power you through the exercises. You can also enjoy chia pudding after a workout if you want to help encourage the growth and repair of your muscles.

Although it has existed in India for quite some time, Golden milk has become a very popular drink within recent years in Western cultures. Traditionally, you make it by warming cow’s milk or plant-based milk with turmeric and other spices like cinnamon and ginger. It is a caffeine-free beverage that may help improve immune function and reduce inflammation. This is because the primary ingredients exhibit impressive antioxidant properties, which help to nourish your cells and fight oxidative stress. The curcumin in turmeric may also increase levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). This is a compound that helps your brain form new connections and encourage the growth of new, healthy brain cells.

For this recipe, we took that nutritious beverage and transformed it into a tasty breakfast or snack option. One thing to keep in mind is that this recipe is one that you can only enjoy after a cleanse. It is not raw vegan because it contains oats and store bought almond milk.
