Chia For Blood Sugar Regulation
Pick your favorite assortment of high antioxidant, colorful fruit and celebrate the warmth and beauty of sumptuous summer days.
This makes a wonderful spa type breakfast or even afternoon snack. The Coconut Cardamom Chia Pudding is a wonderful dairy-free alternative to whipped cream, whilst the chia seeds provide beneficial omega fat. Additionally, a handful of MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acids) macadamia nuts help to slow down how the body processes all the sugar from the fruit. Adding these quality fats help to prevent blood-sugar crashes and to keep blood sugar levels more stable.
