The Chia Seed Pudding Kourtney Kardashian Eats Before a Morning Workout
This recipe will you set you up for the perfect workout—or for a lazy Sunday.
Kourtney Kardashian is committed to maintaining a clean diet, so she has plenty of healthy snack ideas up her sleeve. Most recently, she shared her favorite pre- and post-workout pudding recipe (more on what Kourtney Kardashian eats before and after a workout).
Before an a.m. workout, Kardashian likes to fuel up with either a shake, avocado pudding, or chia seed pudding, according to a recent post on her app. She shared a recipe for her go-to chia seed pudding, plus the toppings she rotates through: banana cinnamon, raspberry mint, and mango coconut.
Why try it? Chia seeds are filled with inflammation-reducing omega-3 fatty acids and filling fiber. Plus, bananas contain a mix of sugars that can fuel your workout; pumpkin seeds are high in magnesium, which is essential to muscle function; and cinnamon contains polyphenols, which research has suggested can help boost athletic performance.
