In my latest book, High Fiber Keto, we worked tirelessly to create some really unique and inspired recipes, many of which you’ll see here on my channel. So be sure to go back and check those out and look forward to many more, coming soon. In today’s video we’re going to be looking at a breakfast recipe that is one of my favorites for a number of reasons. I call this a breakfast recipe but as I’ve said in my recipe videos since day one: there are no rules. Make it your own. Do what you want and feel empowered in the kitchen. Eat it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, midnight snack – you’re the boss so get creative and have fun with it. But, though you are always at liberty to tweak ingredients, I would stick to the recipe as closely as you can with this one. Here’s why…
Number one, the amount of chia is ideal to give you that wonderful creamy consistency. Most of you all have used chia or at least know about it, but for those who don’t, chia has a wonderful ability to release a hydrating gel and and absorb liquid and thicken when added to water, making it an excellent addition to any liquid-based recipe that you want to add some texture to. But texture is not the only reason I decided on this superfood for this recipe. Not only is it packed full of nutrients, the list of which is too long to include here, but its nutrient density and low calorie count can actually promote weight loss! So if you’re worried about carbs or being knocked out of ketosis, worry not.
Chia seeds are also high in antioxidants, as well as being high in protein and fiber, which is very important as part of a high fiber keto diet, and of course the essence of these recipes videos. We are all eating too little fiber and while it is the theme of these recipes, I’ll let the book explain why fiber is so important and shouldn’t be ignored as part of your keto lifestyle.
Last but certainly not least, chia seeds are anti-inflammatory. Why is this so important? I have personally struggled with inflammation caused by an autoimmune disorder and immune health has been a huge part of my life and my mission to improve the quality of your life and maximize your health. Which is why, of course, I am such a huge proponent of keto. I put a lot of focus on our immune health in High Fiber Keto and recipes like this in the book, where we can both reap nutritional and health benefits while enjoying delicious food, that is the ultimate goal, and this recipe has been created with that in mind; a reduction in sugar that in turn helps to support our immune system. It’s a win-win, to say the very least.
It’s always nice to have a pudding like this in the fridge just ready to be served and enjoyed whenever you like. No excuses, no guilt. Just delicious-healthy. 😉
We’ve got some beautiful ingredients on display in this recipe and each one plays such a vital role in your keto health. We have good fats of course; coconut milk, macadamia nut milk, creamy MCT ( we have hemp seeds, chia, and of course flavor and nutrient-filled additions such as Ceylon cinnamon, and real vanilla extract. I’ll explain the how’s and the why’s in the video but this recipe was inspired by my love of all things “good fat” and the joy of indulging in a treat. While I have always had a sweet tooth, I’ve taken great pride in being able to indulge carefully by choosing higher quality ingredients and most importantly, by looking to the science behind what sugar and bad fats do to our health. It has changed my life. In particular – my immune health. This has allowed me to quiet my cravings – the best outcome of all. The good fats satisfy your body’s deepest nutritional needs, leaving little room (or appetite) for the junk and sugars that cause our bodies so much harm and inflammation.
