If you haven’t hopped on the chia seed bandwagon yet, this recipe is your excuse to do so. These tiny black seeds pack a huge nutritional punch, containing concentrated doses of healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and calcium. Chia seeds also absorb up to 12 times their weight in water, so when mixed with almond milk and left to rest overnight, they transform into a vitamin-packed breakfast pudding. Topped with fresh berries and toasted nuts, this delicious breakfast will keep you feeling powerful all day long.
