Chia contains calcium, manganese, fibre and phosphorus, and is a great source of healthy omega 3 fats. It is an easy food to add to your diet. Sprinkle it raw on cereal, salads and soups. Add it to bread and muffin recipes. Mix it into smoothies and coconut water. It can even be used as an egg substitute in cooking. Chia has a neutral flavour and can be stored for long periods of time. For people trying to lose weight and enhance well-being, it's a little miracle. Chia, a tiny seed that the Aztecs used for centuries as a super food, provides a complete source of dietary protein with more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and more fibre, but fewer carbs than rice, grains, and corn. In fact chia is a gluten-free natural appetite suppressant that helps regenerate muscle, sustain energy and balance blood sugar.
