Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
Healthy Snack or Dessert? You Decide!
This is a great tasting, healthy snack filled with great fats for brain health. Also, Chia Seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, rich in antioxidants, and they provide fiber, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the "good" cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.

Unless you are allergic to coconut, this is a very healthy snack or dessert. Adding good fats to your diet is extremely important for brain health. Our brain cells are coated in “fat” and need to be fed adequate good fats to keep our brains healthy and sharp. And considering that our brains dictate or cells, FAT IS IMPORTANT!
