Chia Pudding by Gayle Madeleine Randall, M.D.
What is a pleasant way of increasing my fiber to benefit my microbiome that seems like a treat? The Microbiome, or intestinal bacteria, play a large role in our health and prevention of things like autoimmune disease or neurodegenerative diseases - things like Parkinson’s, Cognitive Decline, Myasthenia Gravis, or MS. Our population eats less than 15g of fiber a day when in fact we need 30g. This increases the short chain fatty acids that support our intestinal cells in the good bacteria we need in there to prevent from getting chronic diseases. So, have a little pudding!
6 Tablespoons Chia seeds
2 cups unsweetened coconut, almond or cashew milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Stevia or xylitol sweetener of choice (optional)
blueberries, blackberries and or strawberries, for topping
