Pro Espresso Pudding
This is a protein rich recipe with well over 100% of your RI Omega-3, making it a great recipe to include in your recovery from training or injury. Protein is the most important macronutrient for muscle growth and repair as well as the maintenance of muscle mass when injured or sick. Omega-3 has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and is shown to support our immune function and recovery from exercise. The caffeine in this recipe may also support cognitive and physical performance.
This pudding recipe contains a good source of fibre from the chia seeds. Fibre is hugely important in the diet for our digestive system, gut health, immune function and helps us to feel more full and satisfied after meals. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day though, particularly if you are increasing your fibre intake. Increasing our fibre intake without consuming adequate fluids can lead to digestive issues such as constipation, bloating, gas and cramps.
