Protein Packed Mango Chia Seed Pudding

Print

This is an amazing recipe for people who don’t have that much time to make breakfast in the morning! Chia seeds are a great source of protein, this is a great post-workout breakfast everyone should try making.

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Chia seeds are loaded with nutrition - protein, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. They are also naturally gluten-free, making them a great choice for those with Celiac disease or a gluten intolerance.
The mangos used in this recipe contain high amounts of vitamin A, an important nutrient for the immunity, skin, and eye health. Vitamin A is also fat-soluble, meaning that the healthy fats found in the chia seeds help the body absorb this nutrient more readily than if consumed on its own. Mangoes are also a great source of vitamin C, as their orange hue might suggest. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, meaning that it helps protect against certain types of cancers, and can also decrease your chances of high blood pressure and heart disease.

    I haven’t checked nutrition info to see if it is accurate but 141g of carbs is enough for a whole day (and some). You’d have to run a marathon to burn that off.

    This looks REALLY good but I have PCOS so is having 141g of carbs and 74g of sugar bad to have? Or would it be okay to have before I do an intense 45 minute workout?
