CHIA PUDS – 3 RECIPES

Chia seeds are little powerhouses of nutrition. They are high in the anti-inflammatory essential fatty acid, omega 3, and are a good source of protein fibre, calcium, magnesium and manganese. The seeds are easy to find in supermarkets, health food shops or online and are best served ground into a smoothie, or made into a pudding with liquid to enable the digestive tract to break down and absorb them. Chia seeds are delicious made into chia puddings and if you haven’t tried one before I encourage you to do so!
