Being one of the most transcendent energy foods for the ancient Aztecs & Mayans, chia seeds are an incredible source of protein, fiber, omega's, calicum, as well as antioxidants. Also, these magnificent little seeds act as a hydration source as well, since they absorb over ten times their weight in water.
By topping this delicious, yet highly nutritious chia seed pudding with fresh fruit, you can have yourself a great snack that stores well in the fridge and will last up to 5 days.
