Why is it good for me?
- Rich in omega-3, as alpha-linoleic acid (ALA) which contributes to the maintenance of normal blood cholesterol levels. The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of ALA
- Chia seeds are high in quality protein, much higher than most plant foods. Protein is the most weight loss friendly macronutrient and can drastically reduce appetite and cravings.
- Chia seeds are 40% fiber by weight, making them one of the best sources of fiber in the world.
- Given that chia seeds are high in fiber, protein and omega-3s, they may reduce your risk of heart disease.
Chia seeds can be easily added to many foods and drinks without affecting flavour.
They are perfect way to stick to vegan without stressing about losing the texture that eggs create. To make one chia seed egg combine 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3-6 tablespoons of water, mix and let sit for about ten minutes. Replace each regular egg with one of these chia seed eggs to find the same great consistency in your baked goods.
If you’re looking to shed a few pounds they come in handy because not only do they make you feel fuller faster since they absorb 10 times their weight in water, but they also reduce food cravings. (One tablespoon of chia seeds has only 60 calories with 0 grams of sugar and 5 grams of fiber!)
If you are pregnant, nursing or have any medical condition, check with your doctor first.
