Chia seeds are a weight loss dream! One ounce of chia seeds contains 11g of dietary fiber! High in phosphorus, protein and omega 3 fatty oils, they help you feel full!
Need more stamina and energy? When eaten, chia seeds slow the conversion of carbohydrates to sugar giving us more strength and endurance!
Chia can be added to anything! It is a healthy lifestyle choice and I started today by incorporating chia into our breakfast routine!
Even though the seeds are tasteless…if you don’t want a gritty feel, make a gel and add it to any liquid!
Add 1/3 cup of chia seeds to 2 cups of water in an an airtight container. Shake vigorously for 90 seconds. Store in refrigerator for up to 2 weeks!
