Yum! Chia seeds are a great source of nutrients! Have you added them to your diet yet? What a great way to reduce inflammation, lower cholesterol, cleanse your colon, fight against diabetes, and give energy without all the caffeine-sugar-laden junk food ideas!
Here are the nutrition facts:
1 oz. Chia seeds
Carbs: 12g (11g fiber)
Omega 6: 1.6g
Omega 3: 4.9g (ALA)
I have added chia seeds to muffins, sprinkled on pancakes, smoothies, and they are always good as a thickener such as in the pudding recipe below…
I enjoy making an easy 3 ingredient chia seed pudding but sometimes add a drizzle of maple syrup along with the vanilla. This is a great substitute for tapioca pudding if you can’t have dairy milk! Click on the Wellness Mama link below in the resources to get a great energy bar recipe!
