Easy, Breezy Chia Seed Pudding



Chia seeds are a such wonderful seed. These little seeds are a great source of protein, fiber, and Omega-3 fatty acids. They absorb liquid and puff up to give that pudding-like consistency. I've tried the pudding with and without blending, and I'm okay with it either way. So if you're on the fence about if you like chia pudding, I would recommend that you try to prepare it both ways before you cross it off your list of things you like.


One serving of chia seeds is 2 tablespoons or 1 oz.

1 serving = 5 g protein = 11 g fiber = 12 g carbohydrates = 9 g fat (mostly polyunsaturated fat) = 128 calories = #superfood


Chia seeds are a great source of protein. Protein is good for repairing and building muscles, and you need protein stored in your body in case of injury or illness. Because it's a good source of protein, chia seed pudding is a good option for breakfast and is evening a healthy dessert option.



The little seed is packed with fiber. If you haven't heard, fiber is great. It keeps you feeling full for longer. It aids in lowering cholesterol levels. It the bulk you need to clean your colon and aids in digestion.


Polyunsaturated fats are those "good fats" that are needed to protect your heart. They can help to reduce the levels of cholesterol in your blood decreasing your risk for heart disease and stroke.
