Chia seeds are very tiny seeds that come from the Salvia hispanica plant. These seeds are tiny but can have a big impact on our bodies. Chia seeds are loaded with antioxidants and nutrients that provide positive benefits to our body.
Here are 3 super simple ways to add chia seeds to your everyday diet.
Add To Yogurt
Yogurt is a ready to eat snack that you can simply add chia seeds to. According to a study conducted by the Journal Of Dairy Science, chia seeds and yogurt make an interesting combination. Some peptides in yogurt have antioxidant activities such as inhibition of lipid perodixation and radical removal. An enrichment with chia seed extracts significantly improved those antioxidant effects in supplemented yogurt.
Water Or Juice
Adding chia seeds to your water or drink of choice can enhance the health benefits of your beverage. The key is to allow the seeds to soak in the liquid. Your water or juice will now be loaded with minerals and fiber.
Chia seeds can gracefully be added to your favorite stir fry recipe. All you need to add is just a tablespoon of seeds while cooking the stir fry. Just that simple you have boosted the health benefits of your meal and you will not even notice it.
