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 a demulcent, 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!
