Chia Pouding - 5 Ways

Do you lack inspiration for breakfast? We have what you are looking for: chia pudding! It is good when you are in a hurry in the morning because it has to be done in advance and it can be kept very well in the fridge for 3 to 4 days.

The chia seed, staple of the ancient Aztec empire, is now recognized for its high content of omega-3 and dietary fiber. A serving of 2 tbsp. (28g) of chia seeds contains:

• 9g of polyunsaturated fat (30 to 33% of the recommended daily intake)
• 11g of fibers (18 to 30% of the recommended daily intake)
• 4 g of proteins

The chia seed also contains an interesting amount of nutrients associated with bone health, including 18% of the recommended daily calcium intake and 27% of the recommended daily intake of phosphorus. In short, we all would like to integrate it into our diet!

In that case, we offer 5 different ways to prepare chia pudding for your morning!
