I was at my friend Nicolette’s house the other day and within a few minutes she whipped up this yummy healthy snack for me . I thought , this would be amazing for my pregnant clients .
It’s super high in omega fatty acids which eating them is especially important during month 7 of pregnancy. This is when your growing baby’s brain is developing rapidly and they are accumulating and putting on fat daily under their skin . Chia seeds are high in Omega fatty acids ( brain food ) , calcium , iron , potassium , fiber , protein and antioxidants. Constipation is VERY common during pregnancy , especially around month 7 when your digestive system slows down and your growing uterus and baby are squashing your intestines. Chia seeds are a great source of fiber and will help with any of the discomforts of constipation. This recipe will make you poop like crazy !! WOOOOO HOOOO !!! Bring it on !! 🙂
Chia Seed breakfast / snack – Can make hot or cold
Mix about a 1/4 chia seeds with about 1&1/2 cups of almond, hemp or coconut milk . Stir every 5 minutes until thickened . Add cinnamon , 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract and sweeten with stevia or agave . Cut up any fruit on top or add some shredded coconut , sliced almonds or hemp seeds . Thats it , sooooooooooooooooo fast , healthy and easy !!!
My friend Pam saw this post and messaged me saying that she makes this all the time. For a different variation she puts the almond milk in a blender with a date and two prunes for sweetness and added fiber and adds pumpkin pie spice! YUMMMMMMMMM …. this is making me hungry !!!!!
