Snack Time!

I spend a lot of time talking about snacks. They are so important for bridging the gap between meals, keeping us energized, and preventing us from getting over-hungry (aka hangry).

They can also add a bit of deliciousness to your day! Take for example this Cardamom Chia Seed Pudding. Sure, plain yogurt would do the trick, but by taking the time to prep this “pudding” you will get something a little more fancy and nutrient-packed.

Nutritional Profile

This chia seed pudding provides protein, carbs, and fat. A complete combination of macronutrients plus fiber to leave you satisfied. Let’s take a closer look at each of the ingredients:

  • Plain greek or Skyr yogurt – packs in 7- 9 grams of protein per half-cup and provides calcium
  • Plain oat milk – a plant-forward milk choice, you could also use another non-dairy milk or classic dairy milk
  • Vanilla extract – a classic flavoring, seek out fairly-traded vanilla if you can
  • Cardamom – a touch of Scandinavia, though it should be noted that this spice is native to Southern India
  • Honey – a luscious sweetener, often available locally produced; you could also sub maple syrup or even regular sugar
  • Chia seeds – these little seeds pack in fiber (11 grams in two tablespoons!), calcium, magnesium, iron, protein, and omega-3 fatty acids (a type of fat that is good for heart health and reducing inflammation)
  • Strawberries – packed with Vitamin C, an antioxidant that can help you absorb the iron from the chia seeds, strawberries are also delicious and beautiful to look at; of course, any fruit or berry will work!
  • Pumpkin seeds – provide fiber, magnesium, omega-3 fatty acids, and protein; toasting them is optional but it adds extra flavor
