HORMONE BALANCING CHIA SEED PUDDING
I absolutely love chia seed puddings for many reasons. Here’s why…. it’s quick, nutrient dense and one of my favorite parts is that they are a protein rich plant source to set your breakfast on the right path with balanced blood sugars.
What more could you want?!
I have been interested in seed cycling since being diagnosed with SIBO and chronically working through it for the past 4 years. With seed cycling the benefits are pretty amazing especially through hormonal ups and downs. I will share more about this in my coming posts this fall! Let’s get back to Breaking-The-Fast! This breakfast is going to be a super supportive part of your day that includes the ideology and a healthy dose of nutrients during your first phase of your cycle.
Here is my recipe!
3 tablespoons Chia Seeds
3/4 cup coconut milk or almond I like (Elmhurst)
1/2 banana, mashed
1 tsp ground organic flax seed
1 tsp of Saigon Cinnamon
¼ tsp almond or 100% pure vanilla extract
1 tsp Maple Syrup or honey or feel free to sweeten with stevia (if needed). I don’t necessarily need sweetener because I get enough sweetness from the banana.
1 T shredded coconut (unsweetened)
1 tsp walnuts or 2 brazil nuts (so good for your thyroid!)
I will make 3 batches at a time and store in the fridge for easy access.
Make sure to shake it up to soak and bathe the chia until they fully drenched in ingredients.
For the first minute or so I will shake, stir and then turn upside down a few times to thoroughly combine the ingredients in your mason jar. Enjoy!
