America and most of the western world is suffering from a epidemic and overall health crisis. What if I told you that the exponential increase in diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disorders, ADHD, and even cancer was due to the overconsumption of gluten, dairy, sugar, and artificial sweeteners.
Would you believe me?
Our society is conditioned to believe that living a "healthy" lifestyle and eating a "healthy" diet requires one to sacrifice taste and enjoyment when it comes to eating.
That is exactly why do I what I do. I am on a mission to teach any and all will that you can live a healthy lifestyle and not just simply "stand" what you are eating, but rather enjoy it and celebrate the food that you are consuming and fueling your body with.
What if I told you that dessert could not just be good for you, but GREAT for you?
Would you believe me?
My vanilla, strawberry chia seed pudding is a dessert that is not just tasty, but it can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or even dinner because it is high in vitamins and nutrients and has a punch of high quality fat to help you power through your day, or whine down your evening.
Why is this good for me?
We all know that chia seeds are great for you. They are high in fiber, fat, protein and high quality carbohydrates. Chia seeds are great for your digestion, as well as your brain function.
Coconut and coconut milk is also high in fat, and plethora of vitamins, including C, E, B3, B1, B5, B6 as well as a number of minerals. The list of minerals includes: selenium, iron, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, which are all complimentary to your overall health.
But when we add raspberries to this already powerful concoction of superfoods, this dessert, or quick snack on the go, becomes a dish that your brain will thank you for every time you take a bite.
Reading the list of vitamins and nutrients may seem almost overwhelming, but when you come to remember that food is medicine, this is all just common sense. But as we often are reminded, "common sense ain't so common".
Making this sweet snack is one of the simplest dishes you will ever make! See, taking your vitamins can be fun, right? And not scary!
