The Revolutionary Super Seeds!
So as you may know, I have recently teamed up with SuperValu Market Cross and Chia Bia to try out some of their amazing new products! So exciting!
Chiabia are an Irish company based in Tramore, Co. Waterford and as the name suggests, all of their products contain Chia seeds! Chia seeds are small almost tasteless seeds that are 100% natural and gluten-free. They can either be eaten raw or used as an ingredient along with other products.
Chia seeds have numerous benefits as they are loaded with antioxidants. Now- I’m not a health expert or a dietitian, but I have done some research on the topic, seen as I’m adding them to all my salads! I added the chia seeds to my green quinoa salad with cucumber, celery, green pepper and mangetout.
Chia seeds deliver a massive amount of nutrients with very few calories, a win-win situation! They are high in many important nutrients such as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium and almost all of the carbs in the seeds are fibre. They are also high in protein which helps for weight loss and contain lots of omega-3 fatty acids which helps to lower the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and cancer.
Chia seeds are so easy to incorporate into your diet- just add them to a salad or your breakfast! Chiabia have lots of varieties including milled and flavoured packs. Here’s a quick recipe with chia seeds!
