You are what you eat (and drink!) is more than just an old saying. It's truth...and power.
All Consuming Wellness
Yes, the struggle is real...and ongoing. For many people, diet (with a lower-case "d", as in not part of a branded regimen) is a four-letter word that puts a bad taste in your mouth. It can be a really tough thing to get a handle on!
It doesn't help that we have constant temptation all around all the time. Or that we live complex lives that are going at turbo speed. Hmm...or that our needs and challenges change over time.
At Real Well, we don't have any magic bullets or all the answers. But, we can share the knowledge we do have. We can get conversations started and build community to support each other.
The important part is to just keep trying. If one thing doesn't work for you, give another approach a go. There aren't really failures — just setbacks and opportunities to start anew — if you continue applying your best effort. (Hopefully with an onwards-and-upwards attitude!) Because, like it or not, nutrition's an integral part of your overall wellness profile — so ya've got to own it.
Chia seeds are small but mighty! You can check out all their nutritional goodness on the FDA's FoodData Central database (super helpful resource!).
Anyway, chia pudding is an awesome snack, dessert or breakfast. It's a treat that checks all the boxes: it's cool, it's creamy, it's substantive. It's a little sweet, a little nutty. Fun — in a good way! — texture. Plus, it's quick/easy/healthy.
Try it and see for yourself! Feel free to get creative and tweak the basic recipe (1 Tbsp chia to 1/4 C liquid, plus your choice of flavorings/toppings/add-ins ).
