What are chia seeds? Chia seeds are little seeds with HUGE benefits.
Rich in fiber, protein(great source for vegetarians/vegans), omega 3 fatty acids(more than salmon and best known plant-based source), calcium, magnesium, and naturally gluten free, almost everyone could use a daily dose of these powerful seeds.
This superfood helps many parts of the body, and even some diseases. Chia seeds are known to significantly lower blood pressure and can improve type two diabetes. Because they are rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and protein, they are great for bone health. The omega 3s they contain may reduce the risk of developing heart disease, cancers, and inflammatory disease. One ounce of chia seeds has 11 grams of fiber and when placed in liquid the fiber absorbs 11 times their weight leaving you fuller longer, aiding in weight loss(when paired with a healthy diet).
Adding chia seeds into your diet is extremely easy. Put them in baked goods, smoothies, salads, or just mix 1-2 tablespoons in water and drink. Another great way to incorporate them is to make a chia pudding by soaking some overnight in coconut or almond milk and add fruit or any of your favorite topping in the morning for a quick and filling breakfast(recipe hear: http://wellnessmama.com/59344/chia-seed-pudding-recipe/ ).
