Guess what my lovelies? You can have this for breakfast, for a snack or for dessert! And it's ready in about five minutes. All you have to do is put 2 spoonfuls in a bowl and let it sit and work it's magic with hot water or any non-cow milk alternative ie. almond/brown rice/hemp milk.
The BEST effect of eating this chia pudding is the wonderful results it will have on your digestion. And I know this will make you joyous especially if you have trouble with your BM's (bowel movements). If you suffer from constipation or loose stools, are often bloated or the plumbing just doesn't seem optimal, then chia may very well because the answer you've been looking for (at least it's a starting point).
A little chia 101, then READ HERE for more about chia:
Chia is 100% gluten-free and Chia Goodness is raw.
Complete source of protein with ALL essential amino acids - the building block of every single cell in your joyous bod!
Fibre-dense. In fact more fibre than wheat bran and flaxseeds. (really wonderful for ppl with hard or dense stools - great for the elderly)
Source of omega-3s. One of the greatest plant sources of a fatty acid called alpha-linoleic acid (ALA).
Low in calories and high in nutrition: Source of calcium, magnesium, manganese, iron, phosphorous, folic acid -- all important for cardiovascular, bone health, stress reduction, baby-making and more.
The chia I had for breakfast also included buckwheat, hemp, organic cacao, raw organic cacao nibs, dates and almonds. You can either buy this put together in one convenient package (see photo) or you can toss the ingredients together. I decided to use Ruth's Foods Chia Goodness. Here's how it works: Take 2 spoonfuls of Chocolate Chia Goodness and place into a cereal bowl while you boil some water.
Pour water over chia and let sit. How much water? Approx. 1/4 cup
Wait 3-5 minutes and give it a little stir.
Add your fresh fruit, in this case, I used fresh Ontario peaches. Hooray for local nutrient-dense food!
