Raspberry & Cream Chia Seed Pudding
I don’t love chia seeds, but I know they’re good for me. Chia means “strength” in Mayan language. Aren’t they super high in calories (yes, they are: 100g = 468 calories)? I’m eating about a cup of these EACH MORNING. They have a bit of the same mouth feeling as the jelly taste of bubble tea balls, just tiny. I’m gunna need to floss after every meal! I guess I’m not much of a sweet person in the morning. I like the raspberry flavour, but chia pudding just isn’t as satisfying as eggs. I’m getting very full by eating it super slowly, though.
According to DrAxe.Com, chia seeds have plenty of benefits:
- Dietary fiber (11g – 42% recommended daily value)
- Protein (4.4g – 9% RDV)
- Omega-3 fatty acids (4915 mg)
- Omega-6 fatty acids (1620 mg)
- Calcium (77 mg – 18% RDV)
- Copper (0.1 mg – 3% RDV)
- Phosphorus (265 mg – 27% RDV)
- Potassium (44.8 mg – 1% RDV)
- Zinc (1.0 mg – 7% RDV)
“Chia also contains essential fatty acids alpha-linolenic and linoleic acid, mucin, strontium, Vitamins A, B, E, and D, and minerals including sulphur, iron, iodine, magnesium, manganese, niacin, thiamine, and they are a rich source of anti-oxidants.”
Millet, Greek spiced sauteed chickpeas, purple onions, and fresh mixed greens and tomatoes with tzatziki sauce on the side.
This is loaded with the greens I’ve been craving! Only a few chickpeas, but with that cous cous, the tomato and onion I’m getting a real Mediterranean vibe. Again, I thought I’d need to eat my snack with lunch, but I’m getting really full! Love the dill cucumber dressing. Definitely want this recipe!
(Sweet corn and black eyed peas)
This snack had tons of black eyed peas and the sharp, tangy pico de gallo I crave! A little watery, which I normally wouldn’t like. but the broth is packed with flavour. I’ve noticed that with all the vegetables and legumes (rather than meat) my tastebuds are constantly exploding. Is that the absence of meat or processed items? Are there just way more fresh ingredients in Sprout Seoul’s food than I’m used to using when cooking?
(Sweet potato glass noodles, bok choy, carrots, bean sprouts, onions stir fried in a spicy soy sauce)
The sweet potato noodles were thin noodles lots of fresh shredded carrot. It had a very tangy dressing, which I didn’t find too spicy. While very filling, it was pretty addictive! I find I’ve been eating small meals more frequently since I can’t finish one Sprout Seoul meal in one sitting.
