Chia Seed Pudding

With 2 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber in each tablespoon, chia seeds will help keep you satiated for hours. Chia balances and stabilizes your blood sugar because it slows the effect at which glucose enters the bloodstream, making it ideal for diabetics and those wanting to prevent diabetes.

Chia will make any meal more joyous, in other words, “healthier”. 



Healthy recipes that will not cause the blood sugar spike

Rich in protein, minerals and fiber, chia seeds also contain 500% more calcium than milk and the same amount of omega-3s as wild salmon.

Omega-3 fatty acids will help reduce any muscle inflammation you may have after a tough workout.
