Chia Seeds & Their Health Benefits

Chia seeds are an edible seed which are oval and gray. They have white and black spots. Chia seeds can absorb more than 10 times their weight in liquid when soaked.

Chia seeds have a ton of health benefits! In addition to being high in protein, they are filled with fiber and antioxidants. Since they contain so much healthy protein, they are filling and satisfying.

They are also high in omega 3 fatty acids. Chia seeds are great for bone health since they contain calcium, magnesium and phosphorus.

Expert Tips & Tricks

Use a ripe mashed banana to add natural sweetness and flavor. If desired, use another mashed berry. Blueberry, raspberry, strawberries and blackberries all work well.

I have found that some chia seeds work better than others. I use and suggest Better Body Foods, which I buy from Amazon.

This recipe must be made with canned coconut milk. Almond milk or cashew milk will not thicken. In addition, this will yield a very runny chia seed pudding.

The longer this chia pudding refrigerates, the better!

Whole30 Breakfast Without Eggs

Most Whole30 breakfast recipes include eggs. While this is great, sometimes egg free breakfasts are needed!

While this chia pudding is Whole30 compliant, a well rounded meal needs more protein and ideally a vegetable. I suggest making some Air Fryer Sausage Links or bacon to go along with this pudding.

In addition, pair this with some roasted veggies for a complete Whole30 meal.
