I love chia seeds*! If you have never try chia seeds, you are missing out on something nutritiously important!

Chia seeds full of fiber, antioxidants, reach in essential omeg-3 fatty acids, phosphorus, manganese, potassium and calcium!

Ill give you an easy recipe, so you can start to incorporate chia seeds into your diet.

I prefer have it for a breakfast, instead of oatmeal

Ingredients:

  • 3 T spoons chia seeds
  • ½ cup of almond milk (or your choice of milk)
  • ½ cup of blueberries
  • 1 banana cut in pieces
  • Cinnamon
  • Vanilla

Put chia seeds into a bowl. Add cinnamon and vanilla. Mix well.  Pour almond milk on top. Mixing it from time to time, in about 10 minutes you will see chia seeds absorbing almond milk: it’s no longer a liquid, but looks like a pudding.

Add blueberries and banana. Enjoy!

LOVE, VAL

*NOTE:

  • A research done by the St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto, Canada has indicated that chia seeds are potentially capable of lowering diastolic blood pressure to alarming levels. So, low blood pressure patients should steer clear of it.
  • Chia should be consumed in short phases followed by break periods as some cases have shown people getting addicted to it.
  • Pregnant and lactating mothers should keep away from chia seeds as not enough researches have been conducted to check for its effects on them.
