Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

undefinedDespite their small size, chia seeds are a nutritional powerhouse. Chia seeds are a great option for vegans and vegetarians as they're rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fibre, iron, protein and calcium. It can be hard to consume enough of these essential nutrients, especially if you're on a plant-based diet.
The benefits of these nutrients includes reduced risk of heart disease, increased enegry and support for your muscles and bones. So eat more chia seeds!

As chia seeds can absorb 9 times their weight in liquid, it's easy to make a filling pudding with them.
Simply mix with a milk or yoghurt to create a thick and creamy pudding, with a texture you could compare to rice pudding or bubble tea.
It's easy to experiment with different add-ins to keep things interesting.
We recommend mixing with almond milk and topping with a dollop of soy yoghurt, natural peanut butter and banana, plus a drizzle of honey. ~Yum~.
