Chia pudding is similar to Overnight oats, except Chia is more satiating and has a higher nutritional value.
Chia seeds are loaded with fiber, magnesium and phosphorus, and also contain omega-3 fatty acids.
Because the carbohydrates in Chia are mainly soluble fibers, Chia seeds are perfect for people trying to lose weight.
Not only will Chia seeds keep you full for longer, but they also don’t spike your insulin levels, which will cut your 10 am cravings.
They also make for a quick & easy dessert, and I’ve even included a really fancy Chia Pudding recipe for dessert (#2).
Also, feel free to use different kinds of milk to change the taste (almond milk, hazelnut milk, oat milk…).
