Chia seeds are a very rich source of calcium, magnesium, phosphorous and manganese, antioxidants, fibre, omega-3 fatty acids and HDL (good cholesterol). They also provide good satiety due to the fat and protein content, help to stabilise blood sugar levels and can be used as an ‘egg replacer’ for those with egg allergies. This recipe is a delicious & easy breakfast option that you can prepare the night before, and keep in the fridge for the next mornings breakfast!
