Veronica Kumra, a certified holistic nutritionist and founder of Veronica K Fit redefines the concept of her much-acclaimed chia pudding bowl, serving it up hot to keep you warm this winter. Easy to make, priceless in its nutrient value and friendly to the gut, this delicious dessert is actually a completely healthy source of proteins and nutrients that Veronica recommends to be enjoyed as a warm and quick meal. Veronica K Fit—a bestseller on Veronica’s Instagram handle followed by over 2,00,000 health-conscious people, the chia pudding bowl, served hot adds a new dimension to its taste quotient.
Perceived as an overnight preparation where you stir all the ingredients together and refrigerate to enjoy it the following day, Veronica’s warm chia pudding bowl recipe cooks faster and ensures all its nutrient values remain locked in. This superfood bowl is an excellent source of protein, fibre, vital nutrients, and minerals (like calcium, magnesium, and omega-3s), digestive enzymes, amino acids, and antioxidants. Research shows that the warm chia pudding bowl also acts as one of the most powerful weapons to fight against digestive issues (like IBD, IBS), chronic health problems (like high cholesterol, osteoporosis, high blood sugar, insulin sensitivity, diabetes, and risk of other heart problems). However, a warm chia pudding bowl works as a perfect Whole30 breakfast or a meal replacement for healthy and health-conscious individuals.
Besides it hits the sweet spot of every single diet you can think of starting from the sustainable ones to the fad ones (from dairy-free or lactose intolerant), gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, Paleo, Whole30 to Keto, low-carb, high-protein, the Mediterranean amongst others.
Prepare your warm bowls with non-dairy/plant-based milk alternatives (like a variety of nut milk or oat milk conveniently available with your local grocer) and sweetener of your choice. Top it up with berries to amplify its antioxidant properties.
An all-rounder, nourishing your holistic whole body (mind, body, soul, muscles, organs, and bones) and even keeps you feeling satiated for longer hours.
This bowl tops the list of the best high-protein vegan breakfasts.
It’s just like an apple a day keeps the doctor away. “I feel like I have started a spectacular movement for better health of our community considering its clinically proven health benefits just like a warm chia pudding bowl a day keeps the doctor away,” says Veronica. Now, let’s normalise calling chia pudding a full-blown meal instead of a tiny little dessert!
