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!
