With the term Superfood  came the name of its most well-known ambassador, the king of all, the notorious chia seed. Its popularity just exploded in the past few years and it became THE healthy thing YOU HAD to incorporate in your everyday diet (alongside queen Kale obviously). Let’s be honest, we’ve seen more than our fair share of chia pudding recipes on the internet, specifically on Instagram, but the thing is; you might still ignore the best way to eat it! And today’s best news is: I’ma tell ya now !

So listen here: the best way to eat it, is to actually make it rise in fruit puree.  Yup, yup, fruit puree… And Oh – Sweet – Baby – Jesus, it is DA trick!!! Trust me. It gives it a soooo damn good taste full of personality and freshness and a vibrant color! You must garnish it with tons of toppings with different textures just like you would do with your smoothie bowl, to increase fun and nutritional intake.

But aside being trendy, chia seeds are full of nutrition. As the queen of the crazy wipe outs, I always wonder how my body can handle all it’s going through when surfing. It is seriously not human. If you too, you want to become an elastic weirdo surfer, solidify your bones and improve your muscular recovery, chia seeds are the go to because it is full of calcium easily assimilable by your body and also, amino acids. It is full of fibers and it’s carbohydrates are slowly digested,which makes it a great option when performing longterm activities. It’s a good source of vegetal proteins, Omega-3, antioxidants, iron, magnesium did potassium which can help you increase your muscular endurance.
