Why choose chia seeds?
Health benefits of chia seeds:
1. Gluten free and rich source of essential Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants and fiber
2. One tablespoon of chia seeds has more calcium than a glass of milk, more Omega-3s than Salmon, and more antioxidants than blueberries.
3. Also, a rich source of essential fatty acids alpha-linolenic and linoleic acid, strontium, 30% protein, Vitamins A, B, E, and D, and minerals including calcium, phosphorus, potassium, iron, iodine, copper, zinc, sodium, magnesium, manganese, niacin, and thiamine and fiber.
Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and also they were known as the “Indian Running Food” because runners and warriors would use them for sustenance while running long distances or during battle. Please try on and stay strong! 🙂
I recommend you to add to any of yours or your kids’ breakfast oatmeal or porridge, yogurt, smoothies etc. at least a tablespoon of a chia seeds to get the energy and strength for the whole day.
Also they can be added to sauces and pudding as a thickener and to muffins and cakes as an egg replacement.
