Ok, so let’s get some Selenium into our body!
Brazil nuts are by far the best source of selenium (tinned tuna also) and selenium is essential for keeping a healthy functioning thyroid and immune system.
Here’s a simple recipe which makes a delicious breakfast or dessert, especially when topped with berries.
Chocolate Chia Seed Pudding
½ cup Brazil nuts
2 cups water
½ cup chia seeds
¼ cup unsweetened cacao powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon sea salt
1 tablespoon maple syrup
Blend Brazil nuts in water in a blender/ nutri-bullet until you get smooth, creamy milk. If desired, strain it through a cheesecloth.
Add Brazil nut milk and other ingredients into a bowl and whisk until combined.
Let sit several minutes (or overnight) until desired thickness is reached.
Serve & Enjoy!
**Make sure you don’t go too over board with selenium supplimentation as too much could cause nausea and vomiting as well as other symptoms – long term. (The upper limit is 350micrograms, if you’re counting – but you should be ok with this recipe!! ) If in doubt, always consult your GP.
