Breakfast – some people say that it’s the most important meal of the day, since it works like a fuel for our body for the upcoming day. No matter, if you agree on the importance of breakfast or not, one thing is clear – breakfast, just like every other meal, should be healthy. And for this I have the perfect recipe for you – exotic flax seed pudding with kiwi and mango!
Probably you have heard of such thing as chia seed pudding. Well, it’s quite similar to flax seed pudding when it comes about the preparation process and health benefits. But there’s one significant difference between chia and flax seed pudding – the price of the seeds. Chia seeds tend to be very expensive. Which is a shame since they are also very good for our health. But at least flax seeds cost less. So they are perfect for healthy and delicious breakfast dish that doesn’t require neither long time of preparation nor big amount of money to buy the necessary ingredients.
Exotic flax seed pudding with kiwi and mango – perfect for breakfast
Vegans often use flax seeds in baking as a substitute for egg. But these small seeds can easily be consumed also raw, which actually is even better. In such a way your body can benefit from all the nutrients that flax seeds contain. First and foremost, flax seeds are mainly known as a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Apart from that, flax seeds are also a great source of fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. And even though you can add flax seeds to basically anything, I’d say that it’s smart to use them for breakfast. Especially if you are searching for something that keeps you full for a longer period of time. If so, this exotic flax seed pudding with kiwi and mango is definitely the right choice for you!
Nutritional value of vegan flax seed pudding
Just like flax seeds, also mango and kiwi contain valuable nutrients that can help you “charge your batteries” with the first rays of sun. Kiwi fruit is rich in vitamin C, which is great for building a strong immune system. Even though also the amount of vitamin K in kiwi is worth mentioning. Also mangos are rich in vitamin C, but additionally mangos contain also a decent amount of vitamin A. So, by combining together few simple ingredients you can get a meal that is packed with valuable nutrients. All that in order to help your body and mind be happier and healthier!
Even though Specky loves fruit a lot, neither mango nor kiwi is between his favorites. So, while I was preparing this vegan flax seed pudding with kiwi and mango, he preferred to take in some vitamin D in a natural way by relaxing in the garden and showing his fluffy bottom to the sun.
By the way, you should also not forget about the importance of spending time in the sun in order to maintain your vitamin D level high enough. Because I’m sure you’ll agree that it’s much better to stay healthy by enjoying some time in fresh air instead of every day taking vitamins and other dietary supplements. Apart from being in the sun, don’t forget to eat clean, healthy and nutritious food, just like this exotic flax seed pudding with kiwi and mango, which is:
- easy to make
- full of valuable nutrients
- full of fiber
- and simply yummy!
