11. June 2017
Are you looking for a delicious, nutritious and saturating breakfast alternative? Then I have exactly the right thing for you. Chiapudding is the ultimate discovery of the last few years for me, it´s so versatile and on top of that it´s very healthy. I could fill a whole page to list the benefits of chia seeds, but I will limit myself to the most important facts.
– Chia seeds have a high content of omega-3 fatty acids and a very favorable ratio of omega-3 to omega 6
– They are true nutrition bombs with high proportions of magnesium, calcium, copper, zinc and iron
– Chia seeds contain a lot of soluble fiber and have a positive effect on the blood sugar level
– They deliver twice as much protein as other seeds
– Chia seeds are gluten-free, anti-inflammatory and are considered natural antihistamine, perfect for allergy sufferers like me.
Ok enough for now with the general facts, let´s get straight to business. When it comes to the kitchen, these small black grains are truly all-a-rounders. In the near future, I´ll upload some more chia recipes for you, but today I show you my classic recipe: chiapudding!
