Aww chia. So we meet again.

Let’s recap the health benefits of chia:

  • More fibre than bran
  • 3x more antioxidants than blueberries
  • 15x more magnesium than broccoli
  • 3x more iron than spinach
  • Helps with hydration

 

You can make a ‘power gel’ by just mixing it with water (water to chia ratio of 9:1).

On Sunday, I decided to make a super healthy post-run recovery snack.

Repair and Recover Vegan Chia Pudding

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/2 cup non-dairy milk (soy, almond, hemp, rice, etc)
  • 1/2 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon Sweetener to taste (agave, maple syrup, brown rice syrup, etc)

Directions: Mix chia, water, and milk together and stir for about 1 minute or two. Next add in the carob or cocoa (optional) and sweetener to taste. Stir for another minute and then pop it into the fridge for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from fridge and stir for another 20-30 seconds. Now enjoy your delicious, energizing, and antioxidant packed chia pudding! You can heat it up in the microwave too. Yields about 3/4 cup.

This is not your average pudding. I’m just going to say that right now. It’s a bit slimy!

do you sell your glo-bars in AB anywhere? I’m sure I’ve seen them on shelves at Planet Organic, no?

This recipe has changed the way I look at pudding and dessert. I can’t believe something so delicious is so good for you- I love it!
I blended it with about 7 vanilla stevia drops, popped it in the fridge and when I was out of the shower I had the most amazing treat.
