Chia Seed Pudding — Be Good to Your Gut!

Chia Seed Pudding — Be Good to Your Gut!

Did you know that chia seeds can be very soothing for the intestines?

Watch my intern Josh Edelstein, a culinary nutrition student at Johnson and Wales University, whip up a Chia Seed Pudding in a jar. It makes a great easy to make snack that your body will thank you for.

Chia seeds are demulcents, and help to build and repair the mucosal layer in your gut. We need this gel-like layer in the gut for immune defense — to support a diverse community of intestinal microbes, to prevent leaky gut, to quell inflammation, and for normal digestion/elimination.

These tiny black seeds are also packed with nutrition. Chia seeds provide fiber, protein, Omega-3 fats, minerals (e.g. magnesium, manganese, calcium and phosphorus) and vitamins (e.g. B vitamins).

Watch this 1 minute video and you’ll see just how easy it is to be good to your gut!
