CHIA! The Super Food

by missbabysunshine

When I was visiting Vancouver, my friend Kimmie and I found this health food vendor who was selling this healthy breakfast cereal at Granville Island.  One of the main ingredients in this breakfast mix was Chia (Salvia hispanica). So, I looked it up on-line. Did you know that Chia is SUPER FOOD?!?!?!?!?
Here are some benefits of Chia seeds: Super Energizing, Improves Cardiovascular health, stabilizes blood sugar, reduces cravings for sweets and junk food, improves mental focus, high-quality protein, gluten-free, super hydration and electrolyte balance, lose weight without starving, add healthy omega 3 to your diet, bake with less fat, add age-defying anti-oxidants, and MUCH MUCH more.

So, here’s my breakfast mix, Chia seeds + Hulled Hemp Seeds + dried blueberries + Freeze dried Strawberries This is how I have this mixture:

1. Mix 2 tablespoons of the mix with 1/2 cup of Almond Milk (or Non-Fat Milk or any milk you choose) and wait for 5-10 min. until Chia seeds are gelatinous.
2. Add 1 chopped banana to the mixture above.

So easy right? and great way to start your day! You have to keep the mixture in the fridge. This mixture is rich in Omega3 & 6, fiber, essential fatty acids, vitamin Cs and much more!!! I can’t even begin to explain how great it is! Just make sure you don’t over eat though…everything is better in moderation. They are SUPER nutritious and this mixture is about 350-400 calories.  Here’s the photo of what it looks like…
