LIGHT + STRENGTH OVERNIGHT CHIA

As October is the month where we celebrate the theme ‘Give Hope’. Save Lives - known as Breast cancer awareness month. With the pink ribbon representing fear of breast cancer, hope for the future along with the goodness of people to support breast cancer.

.

Marked across countries world wide, this movement was aimed to increase attention and support the awareness around it as well as women being early educated around this.

#womenshealth #breastcancerawareness

.

I made this simple pink yet delicious overnight chia pudding with a touch of fresh strawberries to complement the pink theme for breast cancer awareness month.

.

It is made simple. A Strawberry Chia Pudding that is versatile + perfect for a fuss free breakfast. Not only is, it creamy + delicious, but a great alternative to serve as a dessert too.

.

Adding a whole macronutrients profile to your first meal of the day is not only a great way to get you started but also allows for that slow consistent release of energy along with the feeling of satiety thanks to the fiber from the chia + the protein.



Chia seeds are versatile but also loaded with nutrients, these little black seeds are often underestimated. They provide many benefits to both the body + brain.

.

The word chia is derived from ancient wording meaning “strength”. In correlation to ‘Breast cancer awareness’ Women have strength.

.

2 Tablespoons roughly equate to 28g, providing around 11g of fibre + 4g of protein. The fat found in chia seeds are also mostly Omega-3 fats.

.

Chia seeds are known to be a low carb alternative as most of the carbs are fibre, therefore the majority of these seeds are soluble fibre as they mix with water + as chia seeds can expand, around 10-12 times their weight in water, therefore adding more bulk to your stool.




Adding Nuzest Strawberry protein powder / Kids Good Stuff Strawberry you are not only adding flavour but also finishing the overall profile of a good nutrient rich breakfast free from any processed ingredients.

.

Protein at breakfast is key, not only does it lower appetite + but is also great for slowing down energy release + reducing unnecessary cravings. Protein also has a high Thermic response as the body uses more energy to process + digest these proteins. Therefore we increase the metabolic activity within the body.

.

Protein from the chia seeds + by adding Nuzest Clean Lean protein powder, we have completed the overall essential amino acid profile.

.
