High Iron and Fiber Superfood Chia Pudding

Would you like to know an incredible superfood that Fern Olivia, a hormone expert and founder of Thyroid Yoga™ and Ajai Alchemy recommends to combat inflammation and prevent cancer?

It’s a tiny seed packed with power – and it’s so versatile! Fern Olivia has shared a sensational recipe from her You Nourish You recipe book with us, and has filled us in on why it’s so good for our breasts!

Chia is an ancient superfood that is very similar to flax, but without the estrogen and phytoestrogen element. It isjust as good, if not even better source of EFA, so it will do wonders for your health and skin.
Here’s a bit of trivia for you – the chia seeds were originally used by the Mayans as an energy supplement. The running messengers used to carry a little pouch of the seeds around with them. So, chia has been called the “Indian running food”.
And here are some facts for those into food. Chia seeds contain –
2 times the protein of any other seed or grain
5 times the calcium of milk
2 times the amount of potassium as bananas
3 times more iron than spinach
and of course, copious amounts of omega-3 and omega-6

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

It’s the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in chia seeds that help lower our risk of heart disease, balance thyroid hormones, and play a role in breast cancer prevention. Research has shown that chia seeds have a normalizing effect on insulin resistance, which is why they can help prevent Type 2 diabetes. The Essential Fatty Acids or EFA in chia seeds is credited with protecting the human brain and heart, and it is believed that the fatty acids can also help improve the function of the thyroid gland as well.

Another anti-cancer benefit of chia seeds is the fact that they have lignans. Plant lignans, which are classified as phytoestrogens, are believed to help reduce the risk of hormone-related cancers like breast cancer, prostate cancer, endometrial cancer, thyroid cancer, and ovarian cancer.

    What makes it 406 calories? I used unsweetened coconut milk which is 45 calories
    and wondered if I could make it lower in calories
