If you get a craving for something sweet, try making a chia pudding.
Soaked chia seeds are fantastic for healing the lining of the digestive tract!
After being soaked, chia seeds appear with a little gel coating, this gel is full of mucilage.
Mucilage helps to reduce inflammation in the gut by soothing irritated and inflamed tissues so that our bellies can heal and function better.
The recipe below makes two serves, and you will need a container or a couple of glass jars to store them in.
