Why Chia Seeds are Good for You..

I posted a smoothie recipe here which has chia seeds in it. I said I would do a post just about chia seeds, so here it is! My mom started using them and now I'm using them. They can be put into several things and are good for you!

What can they be put in to??

Why are they good for you?

>>Chia seeds are full of antioxidants. They help protect against cancer and aging. 

>>They contain Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

>>Chia seeds are gluten free.

>>Chia seeds help with making you feel full.

>>It is estimated that between 19–23 percent of the seed by weight is protein.

>>Chia seeds are high in calcium which helps with bone strength.

>>Lots of omega-3 fatty acids=good for brain health.

>>Chia seeds can expand stomachs to help eliminate hunger which can help with weight loss.

Everyone has their own opinions about chia seeds. I have mine. I like them and I believe they work. I have noticed a difference in how full I feel if I just put them in a smoothie. Try them out and see for yourself!
