I remember the first time I ever saw someone make a chia pudding recipe I was simply astounded. The sheer speed at which these magical super-powered seeds absorb water straight up blew my mind. Not to mention the completely unique texture that is created. If you’ve never made a chia pudding recipe, you are missing out. For realz!
Chia Seeds have a rich history of being a superfood, dating back to the Aztecs, who considered it to be more valuable than gold. They used it primarily as an efficient energy source, and were known to eat it before embarking on long runs; so often that it has been called the “Aztec Running Food.”
They boast a couple of quite unique nutritional characteristics, particularly being incredibly high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids, as well as containing tryptophan. Omega 3s are vital for brain function, and tryptophan is important for regulating sleep, appetite and improving mood.
So if you’ve never eaten a chia pudding, have a look through this list of healthy, delicious recipes, pick one, and go have your mind blown!
