Vegan strawberry-shake with chia seeds

Yay, it’s strawberry season! Do you like strawberries as much as I do? I prefer to go to a strawberry field and pick it myself. It’s a nice feeling to harvest something. If I ever have my own garden, I will definitely grow vegetables and fruit myself. As a kid, I really enjoyed spending time with my mom and grandparents in the garden. But now back to the strawberries: For the season, I created a simple but delicious recipe for a vegan strawberry-shake with chia seeds.

But now back to the strawberries: For the season, I created a simple but delicious recipe for a vegan strawberry-shake with chia seeds.

But before we go directly to the recipe, I want to show you in terms of my anti-inflammatory nutrition weeks why strawberries and chia seeds are anti-inflammatory:

1) Berry fruit not only contains many polyphenols that have an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect, but also magnesium. An adequate supply of minerals also has an anti-inflammatory effect, which you can achieve with a vegetable and fiber-rich diet.

2) Chia seeds have a low glycemic index and thus stabilize blood sugar levels. Foods with a high glycemic index, such as wheat bread or wheat noodles, have an inflammatory effect.

Frequently asked questions

I tried everything. But it is best not to eat at all. Do I take the strain off my gut?

In order to maintain an adequate supply of nutrients, to build up a rich microbiota as well as holistic health, a regular and symptom-oriented diet is necessary. The intestine and its great population need the right foods. Get a professional support along your way and always be patient. Exchange your ideas and wishes with your nutritionist. Or if you need some help, just don’t hesitate to contact me via the form.

I have no identified intolerances. Why do I still not tolerate fresh dairy products or fiber-rich foods?

Fresh dairy products contain higher levels of probiotics than usual, so they can briefly lead to lactose intolerance-like symptoms. The same is true for fiber-rich foods containing prebiotics. The intestine simply has to get used to the new population. Initially, you can relieve your stomach with a combination of vegetables and vegetable oils (such as linseed oil).

Cabbage, beans or fiber are bloating. Is there anything I can do against it?

A varied diet is important, including healthy fats. These relieve the intestine by ensuring that the food stays in the stomach for a longer time. Therefore always combine the meals with vegetable fats. But watch out – also the amount is important. Furthermore, frozen cabbage or beans are normally leading to less bloating.
