Did you know that our daily fiber requirement by the FDA is 25 grams? Dr. Jamie Agisheva, ND, recommends her patients strive to reach a goal of 35 grams of protein per day in their diet. Our ancient ancestors could have been devouring a whopping 100 grams of fiber every day! Now that’s some serious chomping and a hefty competition for any health-conscious person. Fortunately, this healthy snack recipe featuring chia seeds makes it quick and easy to get nearly a quarter of Dr. Agisheva’s daily fiber requirement and truly enjoy it.
What Are the Benefits of Chia Seeds?
Dry chia seeds are naturally high in fiber and have a mild taste. Just two tablespoons have 8-10 grams of fiber, nearly a quarter of the fiber you’ll need if your recommended intake is 35 grams per day. Fiber is known for improving gut health and helping regulate blood sugar, as well as keep you feeling full longer. Dry chia seeds are also easy to transform into a tasty pudding snack with practically no effort.
High Fiber Dessert Snack
You’ll need dry chia seeds and either water or any milk alternative, such as soy, almond, coconut or hemp. This recipe can be made in almost any quantity as long as you use ¼ cup chia seeds for every cup of water or alternative milk. Once prepared, your snack will last several days in the refrigerator.
- Mix your ingredients in a glass jar with a tight-fitting lid.
- Let stand for 20 minutes, stir again, and refrigerate overnight.
- Stir in fresh seasonal berries and enjoy!
