wpid-dark_chia_sq__38560.1405434241.1280.1280.jpgThis pudding is made of chia seeds, I think you all heard about this super-food, if not, I tell you a few things about them:

1. The word “Chia” comes from the Mayan language and means strength. Chia seeds are a balanced blend of protein, carbohydrates, fats and fiber. It is said that 1 tablespoon of Chia can sustain a person for 24 hours. Athletes have reported that Chia seeds help them perform at optimal levels for much longer periods of time.

2. Chia seeds are high in quality protein, much higher than most plant foods.

3. Chia seeds are very high in Omega-3 fatty acids, they contain more Omega-3s than salmon, gram for gram.

4. They are high in antioxidants.

5. Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber, this should increase fullness, slow absorption of your food and help you automatically eat fewer calories.

6. Chia seeds can play an important role in regulating insulin levels. They can reduce insulin resistance and decrease abnormally high levels of insulin in the blood.

7. Chia seeds contain no gluten or grains. Therefore, all of the nutritional benefits of chia seeds can be obtained on a gluten-free diet.

8. They can be used as an egg re-placer, combining 1 tablespoon ground chia seeds with 3 tablespoons water for each egg you’re replacing.

And now here it is the delicious recipe

Moderation is the key!

IMG_20141010_170335Hello everybody!

I have a little tip for you today. do you see this wonderful, delicious dessert on the picture? Well I ate it all…. and no I don’t eat things like this every day! Now maybe you ask yourselves now, but is this kind of food allowed in a diet? My answer is, yes BUT moderation is the key!

Everything in moderation! It’s important to have balance and have treat like this every now and then if you crave it. Otherwise you will go totally crazy, you will get out of control,  and eat the whole fridge :))

One thing I’ll say though, after I eat things like this heavenly dessert, the next day I eat extra healthy and clean!

Enjoy your life! Live it, and don’t restrict yourself too much!

Have a wonderful weekend! :*
