How Healthy is Chia Pudding?
Let’s talk about chia seeds benefits and why they are healthy and actually good for you. They are rich in soluble fiber, which helps regulate blood sugar, gut health, and cholesterol levels. Chia seeds are also loaded with omega-3 fatty acids which helps fights inflammation. Often times, they refer to it as a superfood because of how nutrient-rich it is with so many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. In need of some calcium and iron in your diet?

Is Chia Pudding Good for Weight loss?
A diet that’s high in fiber is usually recommended for those looking to lose weight. Often times when we hear the word fiber we automatically think veggies. Right? Well, your diet doesn’t have to be loaded with just veggies. It is recommended through some research that eating 30 g of fiber daily may help you lose weight. 2 tablespoons of chia seeds as 10 g of fiber. Which is about 40 percent of the recommended daily intake of fiber as part of a healthy diet.
What does Chia Pudding Taste like?
Chia seeds itself has no taste really. Some may say they are an earthy taste to it but chia seeds absorb whatever liquid you add to it. Thus making it into Chia pudding. So, this means that you can make your chia pudding taste whatever you like it to be. Pretty much whatever liquids or flavors you add to it is what you will get. Adding vanilla almond milk and some maple syrup, for example, will make it taste like vanilla and somewhat sweet. Be creative and your favorite flavors onto your chia pudding. This coconut chia pudding has a slight coconut and vanilla flavor and is also sweet.
