It’s National Chocolate Pudding Day! But instead of giving you a recipe that is full of fat, although delicious, I thought I would pass on a recipe from Chris’ health & fitness site, Body Rebooted, that is packed with nutrition and energy boosting ingredients. It tastes fantastic and is gluten free too.
Now exactly what are the benefits of eating this pudding over other regular puddings? Well, take a look at what these ingredients provide and make up your own mind.
Chia Seeds – High in fiber, lowers bad cholesterol, aids in preventing fat absorption, high in omega 3 & 6’s, antioxidants, calcium, protein and other important minerals.
Cacao Powder – high in protein, fiber, antioxidants, magnesium, calcium, iron and Vitamins B & E. It helps elevate mood and combat depression.
Maca – Offers energy boosts, high in B vitamins and heightens mood while decreasing anxiety.
