Do you like chia seeds? I love making all sorts of low-carb cereals, porridges and puddings using chia seeds. Here is why you should give them a try:
- they are very low in net carbs (almost all carbs in chia seeds are fibre). Are you counting total carbs? This post explains whether you should be counting total or net carbs.
- great source of protein - use just like whey protein in smoothies!
- great source of omega 3 fatty acids
- high level of fibre and protein will help you stay sated for longer and you will naturally eat less.
- very high in micronutrients (calcium , magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus, manganese, etc.) and low in calories.
Here are even more recipes from my blog with chia seeds.
Note: The main reason I use two sweeteners in most of my recipes is that a combination of more sweeteners mask the aftertaste / bitterness of some of them. If the pudding is too thick, add 2-4 tbsp of water or almond milk.
