Change Your Life With Chia
Chia seeds are an excellent protein source, they are about 14% protein, which is very high compared to most plants, especially for people who eat little or no animal products. Add Chia with flax seed and you have a wonderful source of vegetarian protein.
It contains calcium, manganese, and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats. They can be eaten raw or soaked in liquid for at least 10–15 minutes, making them into a gelatinous, tapioca-like substance, which can be eaten straight or mixed into a variety of foods. You can use it for replacement for eggs in your recipes. Simply mix a tablespoon of chia with three tablespoons of water and let it sit for fifteen minutes.
Being high in dietary fiber, chia helps promote bowel regularity and healthy stool. Consuming a single tablespoon of chia seeds a day will help your body utilize the food you consume more efficiently.
Did you know that by increasing our consumption of antioxidant-rich foods like chia, we thereby increase antioxidant activity in our bodies, and slow the aging process. Pretty Awsome !
I highly recommend trying chia seed to anyone.
