Summary: Chia seeds are one of the most popular superfoods within the health community.
Originally from Mexico, chia seeds are very nutritionally dense, being the second best plant source of Omega 3 ALA (an ounce - 28g - of chia seeds will give you almost 5g of Omega 3) after flax seeds, both better sources than salmon, and an excellent source of protein, Calcium, Phosphorus and dietary fibre (an ounce of chia seeds will give you almost half of the recommended daily intake of fibre).
Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and it is said that Aztec warriors would travel great distances, carrying the equivalent of just one spoonful of chia seeds, along with their water pouch, and that this would be enough to sustain them for a whole day or running long distances and battles.
Chia seed pudding is therefore an excellent choice for breakfast, to easily keep us fuelled until a late lunch.
You can prepare enough chia pudding for a few days and keep it refrigerated. Given enough time, chia seeds will soak a lot of liquid, up to 12 times their volume. Adjust the amount of liquid to your preferred consistency and the soaking time available to you.
I have included bee pollen in this recipe as some vegans include bee products in their diets, but please leave it out to keep this recipe strictly vegan.
