4 tbsp chia seeds provides:
- as much calcium as three cups of milk
- as much magnesium as ten stalks of broccoli
- 64% more Potassium than a banana
- 600% more iron than spinach
- 30% more antioxidants than blueberries
- 25% more dietary fiber than flaxseed
- and approximately the same amount of omega-3 as that found in a 32-ounce fillet of salmon.
I prefer them ground, but you can also eat them whole.
I sprinkle them on my greek yogurt as well as put them in my smoothies
Always store in the freezer.
SMALL CHANGES, BIG RESULTS!!
Chia Seed Pudding (taken from www.rawfoodswitch.com)
- 1/4 Cup Chia Seeds
- 1 1/2 Cups Nut Milk of Choice (I like Almond Milk)
- Dash of vanilla
- Raw honey or stevia to sweeten
- Decorate with Kiwi slice (optional)
- Place all the ingredients in a mason jar or other glass container.
- Shake well to ensure Chia seeds are submerged in the nut milk.
- Store in refrigerator overnight. The Chia seeds will soak up the water and become chewy just like tapioca.
