Chia Seed Breakfast Pudding


by Marla Murphy January 22, 2015 2 Comments

I can’t say enough good things about chia seeds and after you hear about all of the benefits and ways to use chia seeds you will love them too!  Origin: Chia seeds come from a plant dating back to Mayan and Aztec cultures. These cultures used chia seeds as ‘energy boosters’ and they were known for providing strength. Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole grain food that our body recognizes as a seeds.  The benefits are endless:
  • Contain protein, fiber, omega fatty acids, carbohydrates and vitamins/minerals.
  • Protein and fiber to help regulate blood glucose and keep us full
  • Omega 3 fatty acids that lower risk of hear disease and protect against inflammation.
1 serving size is a tablespoon: 60 calories, 5 grams of carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein and 2250mg of omega 3, 805mg of omega 6 and 295mg of omega 9. How to use them:
  • Smoothies
  • Salads
  • Protein pancakes
  • Oatmeal
  • Greek yogurt
  • Vegetable stir fry
  • Fruit salad

I love the convenience of these overnight oats! All you have to do is wake up in the morning and they are ready! IMG_9453

Hey Dawn! I am not sure want happen the tupperware should have been fine. I usually put mine in small glass mason jars though so maybe that would help? Also if it looks a little ‘dry’ after adding the ingredients you can add a little pinch extra of almond milk. The overnight oats will be a little bit more ‘crunchier’ than normal cooked oats in the morning though. Let me know if this helps!

I used Tupperware for my pudding and it did not seem to thicken properly overnight. Do you recommend a better option?
