Did you know I eat Chia Seeds everyday?

And I don’t mean I sit down in front of the TV to watch The Bachelorette with a bowl of Chia Seeds. LOL.
NO…. One of the ways I sneak this in is sprinkling a spoonful over my oatmeal every morning.

And don’t you worry, I’m not using it with hopes that the top of my head sprouts green fuzz. Although that would be awesome.  NAH…. here are my reasons WHY I Ch Ch Ch Chia:

~ High source of fiber. Which means my tummy stays fuller longer so I don’t overeat.

~ Great source of Omega 3’s. These fatty acids are important for brain health. Could explain why me is smart. 

~ Healthy teeth & bones! It’s has 5 times more calcium than milk.

~ Rich in protein. As oppose to being poor.  It’s a great vegan option to pack in that protein without any cholesterol. One 28 gram serving of these super seeds has 4.4 grams of protein.

~ Provides Energizer Bunny type energy. Ancient Aztec warriors used chia seeds during their long journeys to increase stamina and energy over long periods of time. Also know as the “Indian Running Food”.

~ Helps you combat Diabetes. This super food is known for it’s ability to slow down digestion and balance blood sugar so you avoid those spikes.

~ It’s also been shown to improve blood pressure, and may increase your healthy cholesterol levels all while LOWERING your total LDL and triglyceride cholesterol. Fancy words that mean it’s good for your ticker.

~ Full of anti-oxidants. Nobody wants their skin to premature, or their various tissues to get inflamed. Anti-oxidants are your FRIEND if you want healthy skin, hair & nails.

~ Great source of Vitamin C! In fact it has 7 times more Vitamin C than oranges. Eat a little chia seeds, or seven oranges. Your choice.

SO AS YOU CAN SEE…… if you don’t Ch Ch Ch Chia, you’re TOTALLY missing out.

And to all my fellow Shakeology drinkers? Don’t you worry! Guess what’s one of the seventy whole food ingredients you find in Shakeology? BEST believe it —— CHIA seeds. #BOOM

Now just add some extra Chia seeds if you please and be as awesome as me.
