What makes Chia seeds so special? First off, they’re high in fiber to help keep you satiated until lunch. In fact, the fiber forms a gel which acts like a sponge, taking up space in your stomach and helping to keep you feeling full. The chia seeds’ fiber also keeps your blood sugar levels stable as it creates a gradual release of fuel into your bloodstream. Plus, chia seeds are a great source of omega 3 fatty acids, which fight inflammation. Make this pudding in the evening, and wake up to an indulgent, yet healthy breakfast treat.
