Chia Seed Pudding Breakfast (gluten, dairy, corn, soy and refined sugar free)


Benefits of Chia Seeds

-High in Omega 3's
-Contains more antioxidant's than flaxseed
-Chia is one of nature’s highest plant-based sources of complete protein
-Slows down your body’s conversion of starches into sugars, therefore balancing your blood sugar
-Excellent source of dietary fiber, one serving has 24% of your daily fiber
-One serving has only 70 calories and 3 grams of protein

You can find Chia Seeds at any health food store, or online. I like Navitas Naturals brand, you can purchase them from  Amazon or Navitas Naturals

Here is a video on a great recipe using Chia Seeds from Ellen Nalaboff of Ellen's Fitness.
