Chia Seed Vanilla Pudding

Chia seeds have been getting a lot of positive press lately. They are quite the super food and make a perfect addition to the low carb diet because they are all fiber. These seeds help control blood sugar levels by slowing the conversion of starches to sugar and they are packed with omega-3. The complete protein in chia seeds help raise energy levels and many people find they curb hunger to help lose weight. You can even use it as a substitute for fat when baking to reduce calories and add fiber. Chia seeds have no taste so they can be added to food without changing the flavor.

Chia seeds are often mixed with water to create a gel. Chia gel is made by mixing 9 parts water to 1 part Chia seeds. The gel can be kept in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. It makes a great addition to smoothies and yogurt, but it can also be used when cooking and baking. I plan to experiment a little and see how I can use chia in other low carb recipes.
