The healthiest way to eat chia seeds is raw.
They are mildly flavored so will blend in with many foods, such as your yogurt or cereal. Some blend a tablespoon in with a smoothy and drink their seeds.
Because chia seeds contain soluble fiber they may help to satisfy hunger so are being considered as a tool for weight loss. One thing all of us need to consider whether we are dieting or not is nutrition. We want to feel our best, look our best and perform our best and sound nutrition is the key to that. Our bodies can only give us their best when we give our body the best we have so it is quite natural when we hear of something that is not only being touted as successful in the battle of weight loss but as nutritional, we are curious. I am anyway, so when I started hearing about chia seeds, I researched and wanted to share the information with you.
Chia seeds boast:
Chia seeds replenish the nutrients needed by muscles after working out.
We know that muscles burn more calories than fat and chia seeds are a wonderful food to replenish the many nutrients needed to build muscle mass. They also help to provide endurance for better work outs.
Omega 3 fatty oils found in chia seeds help to improve circulation and lower blood pressure aiding in improved cardiovascular health.
Consult your family care provider before adding a supplement or food to your diet if you are under his or her care for any health condition. Chia seeds can be purchased at larger grocery stores, health food stores and online markets such as Puritan to name one of many.
