Ch-Ch-Ch Chia!

Drop that chocolate pudding and replace it with some chia pudding!

Chia seeds come from the plant Salvia hispanica. Native in Mexico, chia seeds were a vital part of the Aztec and Mayan cultures. Though very small in size, chia seeds are jam packed with the necessary nutrients your body needs. Just two tablespoons of these seeds and your body receives: 4 grams of protein, 9 grams of fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber! Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fats, protein, vitamins and minerals.

Chia pudding is a fantastic replacement for sugary foods such as chocolate pudding or Greek yogurt. Below are two recipes for the vegan and gluten-free, chocolate and vanilla/coconut chia puddings. Follow the recipes and video below to start your day the right way.
