Mi Bella Chia

Chia Seeds Being Soaked
Chia is one of the superfoods that has become ubiquitous.  This amazing seed can be used for so many purposes and has tremendous benefits:

     1.     Highest plant source of Omega-3’s.  Chia seeds have more omega 3’s than salmon!

2.     More calcium than 2% milk

3.     High in fiber – even more than flax seed.

4.     Boosts your stamina – the Aztecs warriors used to take them.

5.     Use it as an egg replacer (soak 1 Tbsp Chia Seeds to ½ cup of water).

6.     Did I mention weight loss?  Chia seeds keep you fuller longer and control food cravings.

7.     Studies have shown that daily consumption of chia seeds have helped lower blood pressure.

Add 2 Tablespoons chia to 1/2 cup water and let it soak for an hour – you’ll have a gel which you can add to smoothies, cereals, pancakes or make “bubble” tea.  It will keep for 2-3 days.
How do you use chia seeds?
Cheers to Your Vibrant Health!
