Chef Angela: Organic blueberries are more expensive, but they are a real nutritional investment: they will help you avoid high pesticide residues found in the non-organic kind.
Debbie’s Nutrition Notes: A pudding that will help DECREASE your appetite? Yes! Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber, absorbing water and helping to make you feel more full. Chia seeds are also loaded with protein and omega-3 fatty acids, and they are high in antioxidants, substances that may help prevent cell damage.
