Raspberry & Lemon Chia Pudding February 20 2014

Why add Chia to your diet? These small but highly nutritious seeds are:

- High in antioxidants which strengthen the immune system and keep you disease-free.

- A good source of calcium and phosphorus, dietary fiber and manganese.

- Packed with protein, complex carbohydrates (good carbs), essential fats, various vitamins such as B vitamins, and various minerals including calcium, copper and zinc.

- Very low in cholesterol and sodium.
