The Mighty Power of Chia

The Mighty Power of Chia

A diet high in fibre is the best way to keep a healthy digestive system, when beneficial bacteria don’t have enough fibre, they starve off and die.

Bacteria in your gut change in response to your diet quickly. Over a matter of weeks, these changes may start to affect your health – making diet the single biggest influence on your gut health.

Here’s a quick hack: two tablespoons of chia seeds will provide you with roughly a third of your daily fibre needs. You can add chia seeds to so many things -  smoothies, pasta sauces, soups, swirl through yoghurts or try the Chia Pudding below.

Chocolate Chia Pudding

  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1.5 tablespoons raw cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice
  • 1 teaspoon real vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon ceylon cinnamon
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • Pinch of sea salt

 Combine all ingredients in a blender then place in a small glass pot in the fridge over night or for 3 hours. Serve with your choice of yoghurt or fruit.
