Chia Pudding With Pomegranate
Chia seeds are super high in Omega-3, each seed contains about 60% omega-3 - this makes them one of the highest sources of this fatty acid (second only to flax). They are an excellent source of fiber, with a amazing 10 grams in only 2 tablespoons. That is one-third of the daily recommended intake in only one serving! Besides that - chia seeds are very rich in minerals - 28 grams of chia seeds contain 4 grams of protein, 18% daily recommended intake of calcium, 30% manganese, and 27% phosphorus.
