Sprouted Fig (The Smoothie Lover)

Chia Pudding w/ maple syrup, roasted almonds & dried figs | The Smoothie Lover

I’m going to Singapore! Arrrgh…

Three of my great friends and I participated in the Alympiad (which is the math-olypiad) on my high school and guess what? We won! (Well, we won over the other teams at our high school – not the entire contest.) Isn’t it amazing?! So now we are going to participate in another contest in Singapore. Crazy! I can’t believe it. I’m so happy!

We didn’t know until yesterday, where the headmaster announced it at the assembly for the school. So we had to stand in front of the entire school – amaze painted on our faces.

Let’s celebrate!

With chia pudding!

FIY: The finaly in the Alympiad is in Holland – there is another team from our school going there. But I’d much rather go to Singapore!

At first I wanted to make a raw cake. But it failed miserably. The crust went fine – something like these snack bites I made a while ago. But then I wanted to make coconut whipped cream for topping. Two words: I failed. The can had been shaken or something like that. Anyways – it didn’t work.

Good thing I made these lovely chia puddings yesterday then.

Benefits of chia seeds:

A good source of fibers – one serving (28 g – approx. 2 tbsp) chia seeds contain 11 grams of fibers. That’s a third of the recommended daily intake.

A good source of calcium – which means stronger bones and teeth.

Lot’s of protein – one serving contains 10 percent of the recommended daily intake. That’s quite a lot considering one serving is pretty small.
