The Magic of Chia Seeds

Your Carolina

One Addition that needs to be incorporated into your daily nutritional toolbox are
Chia Seeds!

Why should we be eating Chia seeds?

•Chia seeds are rich in omega three fatty acids, fiber and protein and calcium
•Chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega 3 fatty acids and are also a complete protein meaning they contain all 9 essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body
•The fiber in chia seeds is mainly soluble fiber and mucilage, the substance responsible for the gluey texture of moistened chia seeds. These fibers may help to lower LDL cholesterol and slow down digestion, which can prevent blood sugar spikes after eating a meal and promote a feeling of fullness (Harvard public health)
•We are making a health snack or meal replacement using chia seeds today

•Ingredients include
2 tablespoons of chia seeds
¼ cup of walnuts
1 cup of almond milk
Raspberries
