Chia seeds, why should you eat them???
Just like hemp hearts, I put these in everything. Easy fiber, easy omega's, and pretty tasteless!
Chia seeds are a small, black, and white seed that comes from the plant Salvia hispanica. They have become increasingly popular in recent years due to their many health benefits.
If you haven't tried them.. hopefully you are convinced after you read this...
High in Nutrients: Chia seeds are a great source of fiber, protein, healthy fats, and various micronutrients such as calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus.
Rich in Antioxidants: Chia seeds are high in antioxidants, which can help protect the body against damage from free radicals and reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease.
Good for Digestive Health: The high fiber content in chia seeds can help promote healthy digestion and prevent constipation.
Can Help Control Blood Sugar Levels: The soluble fiber in chia seeds can slow down the absorption of sugar, which can help regulate blood sugar levels and reduce the risk of diabetes.
Can Promote Weight Loss: Chia seeds can help promote weight loss by reducing appetite, increasing feelings of fullness, and reducing inflammation.
Easy to Incorporate into Your Diet: Chia seeds can be easily incorporated into your diet by adding them to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, or as a topping for salads or other dishes.
