Today I thought I would write a little about a single food, and why you should include it in your daily diet. I will write a shorter blog on a mono-meal, super food, or supplement to your diet from time to time. This is a great way to know why an ingredient is good for you, as well as how to use it.
Yes I'm talking about the same thing that back in the late 90's we grew plants with. Chia Pets were all the rage for a while. Yet nobody understood that instead of grow a green sheep, they could eat those little seeds. We were holding in our hands the secreat food of the Mayan's.
Chia Seeds are a great super food, which you should include in your daily diet. You can sprinkle them onto anything you want just about, add them into a smoothie, or eat them on their own. They can absorb up to 10 times their size in any liquid, this makes them great to help thicken up any drink.
Chia Seeds are the highest plant base source of Omega-3. They help with Heart, Mental, and Digestion health. When it comes to Diabetes and Hyperglycemia, chia seeds help by to control the blood sugar. They are a complex protein with 9 amino acids, a great source of Calcium, Magnesium, Iron, and Fiber.
You can find Chia Seeds in your local health food stores or vitamin stores. They are really cheap, and affordable to all. My personal favorite way to enjoy Chia Seeds is in my water. Just let them soak in your water and then enjoy them. They will give your water a light nutty flavor.
