Celebrating National Nutrition Month with Carrington Farms' Banana Chia Seed Pudding
We are big fans of chia seeds in our home for several simple reasons;
Chia seeds are a “whole grain” food and are known to be normally grown organically.
They are non-GMO and naturally free of gluten.
That spells amazing in my book plus we all know that gluten and my mini Peyton do not mix so this dairy and gluten free recipe is a perfect fit! Don't let their tiny size fool you either chia seeds are jam packed with with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and a whole bunch of micronutrients, which basically makes it one of the most healthiest and nutritious foods on the planet. We are making serious attempts to heavily reduce the amount of meat and the type of meats we are consuming in our home so we will take our protein any way we can get it!
