Starting your day with a balanced and nutritious breakfast has never been easier with these 20 easy chia seed pudding recipes! With a vegan and Paleo variety that includes chocolate, matcha, summer fruit and fall flavors, this roundup has a recipe for every taste and every season.

It is often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A balanced, nutritious breakfast is recommended to start your day on the right track, but finding the time to prepare a “healthy” and “balanced” breakfast might seem impossible when you’re pressed for time in the morning, as most of us are.

I’m all about solutions…oh, and I like food that is both nutritious and tastes good. Chia seed pudding is just that! Just a 1/4 cup of chia seeds, which is what goes into one serving of chia seed pudding, boasts a whopping 14 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein, and almost 5 grams of those famous, heart healthy omega 3 fats (ALA) in addition to calcium, phosphorus, manganese and zinc (source). The combination of protein, healthy fat and so much fiber makes chia seed pudding an incredibly balanced meal that will leave you feeling satisfied and your blood sugar balanced, which is probably why chia seeds have been recognized for helping with weight loss and keeping your heart healthy (source).

But chia seed pudding is more than nutritious. If you add the right ingredients, it tastes really good! Plus, it’s stupid easy to make. Just combine 1/4 cup of dry chia seeds with about 1 cup of liquid and let it soak overnight. In the morning, give it a stir, add whatever remaining ingredients you fancy, and voila! A healthy and balanced breakfast is served.
