Originally grown in Mexico, chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and chia seeds were known as “runners’ food” because runners and warriors would use them as fuel while running long distances or during battle. Aztec warriors ate them to give them energy and endurance, claiming that just one spoonful could sustain them for 24 hours.
According to Ayurveda, chia seeds can help nourish the blood and promote digestive regularity thanks to their ability to absorb water in the gastrointestinal tract, forming a gel-like substance.
Protein-Packed Chia Pudding
One shortcoming of most chia seed pudding recipes is relatively low protein content. But that's not the case with this healthy chia pudding powered by Bone Broth Protein Vanilla. Each serving provides 18.3 grams of protein.
Bone Broth Protein is the easiest way to consume the ancient superfood that our ancestors ate every single day. It's three times more potent than homemade broth and twice as potent compared to the other leading bone broth brands (based on protein content). It also provides support for the gut, joints and skin.
