Pick 1, 2 or 3 ingredients from the list below to enhance chia pudding or porridge:
1 serving of fruit or fruit puree
1 tbs nut butter (almond, sunflower, cashew, etc)
1 tsp coconut oil (best in heated porridge)

Chia seed porridge and pudding are healthy grain-free, high-fiber and filling substitutes for breakfast foods (cereal, oatmeal) or desserts (cookies, baked goods, ice cream, etc). To see if you are getting enough fiber in your diet, input your daily dietary intake into an app or website (similar to MyNetDiary) for 1-7 days and evaluate your daily fiber intake. For optimal wellness, disease prevention and weight management, the daily fiber recommendation ranges from 30-40g of fiber for adults. Chia seed porridge and pudding can be used to fill in your fiber needs, where your diet is lacking. As the case with all high-fiber diets, be sure to drink plenty of water to keep the bowels healthy and happy.
