Chia Seed Pudding

Chia Seed Pudding

Chia seeds are loaded with protein, fiber and omega-3s. They're also high in a variety of antioxidants, vitamins and mineral, making them a great addition to your diet. Chia seed pudding is one of my favorite ways to consume them. There are so many options and recipes you can create with them. I like to mix them up and put them in the fridge overnight for a healthy breakfast. The fiber and protein are a great way to kickstart your day. But they also make a delicious and healthy dessert if you get a sweet tooth in the afternoon or evening.

G3 Chia Seed Pudding

G3 Chia Seed Pudding

Have you ever made chia seed pudding before? It's one of my favorite things to make. And for many reasons. The first of which...it's delicious! It also has soooo many health benefits. It's packed with omega-3's, protein, antioxidants and fiber (a lot of it)! I work with a lot of nutrition clients who struggle to get enough greens and fiber in their diet, so when PurePharma announced their new product, G3, I couldn't wait to add it to some chia seeds pudding. This recipes packs a healthy punch!! With the addition of G3, which is a greens powder made from spinach, kale and parsley, you're loading up on vitamins and minerals from some of the most nutrient dense leafy greens.

CHIA SEED PUDDING

I have some exciting news! My wrist is back in action. If you didn't already know I sprained it pretty bad doing a heavy clean about two months ago and it was devastating. I wasn't able to lift weights, most gymnastics moves were out of the picture and my drive to perform was suffering. I managed to push through it though and I found some modified movements I could do. I also worked really hard on my endurance, ie. running and rowing, and I spent a lot of precious time with the airdyne. When it comes to weaknesses those are mine, so pushing myself mentally through that was really good for me. Now I'm faster than before and my strength has only been sacrificed slightly. With the CrossFit regionals 3 weeks out I think I have just enough time to get back to where I need to be and I'm excited to get after it. My teammates have been awesome and supportive and I'm so glad I'm able to compete with them. It's going to be an experience I really didn't want to miss out on. If you're a fitness enthusiast yourself or an avid crossfitter you should definitely find out where regionals in your area are happening and get out for a weekend of fun. If that's already on the agenda then enjoy. And if you're competing good luck! I'll be competing with my team at the NorCal regionals Memorial Day weekend in Santa Rosa. Maybe I'll see you there!
