Paleo & Keto Chocolate Berry Chia Seed Pudding

Sometimes I can’t stand the thought of eating another egg for breakfast. This is when chia seed pudding comes to the rescue and saves the day for me. It helps break up the repetition of all things eggs and can even serve as a special treat. Not to mention, my 4-year old little girl loves it just as much as ice cream and will often ask for a cup of this pudding after a meal or for a snack.

What are the benefits of chia seeds?

Not only are chia seeds yummy to eat, but they also have a lot of nutrients that may support weight loss . Even though these seeds look little, there are full of protein, antioxidants, fiber, iron and omega-3 fatty acid. Additionally, it studies have shown that it could lower risk of heart disease, inflammation and even help reduce blood sugar and cholesterol levels.

Is chia seed pudding really healthy?

Depending on the ingredients you use, chia seed pudding can be a great addition to your diet. As long as you are not loading it down with a ton of sugar, then you are good to go. Chia seeds have a high amount of protein and a low carbohydrate count, so it’s a great for people struggling with blood sugar levels. We live pretty much dairy free, so I use almond milk with my chia seeds and it keeps the calorie count minimal.

Is chia seed pudding Paleo, Keto and Whole30 compliant?

Chia seeds are great to add in Paleo, Keto and Whole30 cooking.

According to the Whole30 website, it states, “These “seeds” aren’t the same botanical family of seeds that we eliminate with grains and legumes, so that makes them fine to eat during your Whole30. hia isn’t likely to cause you any serious trouble, but it’s not the omega-3 super-food it’s made out to be, either. We explain why in It Starts With Food, but in summary, chia should be treated like any other nut and consumed in limited quantities.” However, while completing a Whole30, it might be best to stir clear from making pudding with chia seeds because it’s like recreating oatmeal or cereal. This can easily awaken your sugar dragon and bring on. 

Although chia seed pudding isn’t recommended for Whole30, it’s a great addition to your Keto and Paleo diet and lifestyle. When I get sick of eating eggs, I usually whip some of this pudding up the night before and it makes an easy grab and go breakfast option. Especially this recipe, it almost taste like a cobbler and can even serve as a tasty dessert!

Chia seeds have a milkd nutty flavor and can be used in both sweet and savory dishes. When you add liquid to these seeds, they soak them up and they become soft and gel like. Some say that chia seeds look and taste a lot like a poppyseed.

(AD) With the back-to-school season right around the corner, life can get pretty busy. I'm here to help with a quick and easy lunchbox idea featuring @StarKistCharlie Hot Buffalo Style Tuna Creation Pouch. If you are not a fan of spicy, don't fear, these little pouches come in 23+ varieties and you can find them in the tuna aisle in the grocery store or online. Most of the pouches have 10g+ lean protein per single-serve pouch and 110 calories or less. I love serving these with my favorite fruits and veggies to make them a complete lunch or snack. These pouches are also great for a post-workout protein-filled snack. Just tear it open and eat straight from the pouch. #EverydayGoals

Every year I let the girls pick out a theme for their birthday cakes and I try to make it magical. This year Eloise wanted a chocolate cake with watercolor buttercream along with pink and teal macarons. It turned out better than I imagined and Eloise absolutely love it!!!

🧁For the buttercream, I used my recipe that is located on my site. You can also find it in my profile

🍰As for the cake, I  used my box cake mix hack. This is seriously my favorite way to make a cake because it tastes straight from the bakery. See the hack below

✨Follow the box cake mix instructions but with these changes 
Tip 1 Add one more egg (or add 2 if you want it to be very rich)
Tip 2 Use melted butter instead of oil and double the amount
Tip 3 Use milk instead of water
Tip 4 if using for cupcakes fill 3/4 of cupcake liners with the mix.
✨Bake according to the box and remove it two minutes early and let them sit for a couple of minutes in the tin. ✨Remove and allow them to cool

🍓I used Bonne Maman Strawberry Jam for the middle
