They say regular exercise is essential to healthy aging and longevity. Since signing up at my local gym, I’d say I get in two to three workouts a week. I’ve noticed a huge boost in my recovery ever since I started watching my pre and post-workout nutrition. I like to have a mix of simple and complex carbs, minimal fats, and adequate protein around my workouts. What this does is it fuels my workouts and refills my muscle glycogen stores that were depleted during exercises, and the protein works to help build and repair muscles. This chocolate keto chia pudding ticks all those boxes but really, even without those benefits, I would still be eating this regularly. It’s just so good especially when my sweet tooth has me craving for chocolate. Since discovering this recipe, I can give in to my chocolate cravings guilt-free.
