Chia Love

Talk about tiny little seeds that pack a nutritional punch. Rich in fibre, omega-3s, antioxidants and iron, chia seeds are considered a leading super-food.

They’re also versatile and tasty when added to foods such as yogurt, oatmeal, scrambled eggs or smoothies.

Lately, I’ve been drinking-up a daily dose, thanks to trachealth’s convenient packets and my favourite Soda Stream.

Chia and soda stream

Available in a few flavours, I’m loving Strawberry Lemonade.  Just one packet has 80 calories, 10grams of carbs, 4grams of fibre and 2grams of protein.

Sweetened with stevia, I add one serving to about 1 litre of water (lightly carbonated) for a perfectly light and refreshing drink. What’s more, when left for an hour or so, the chia seeds take on a deliciously smooth, jello-like texture which I find richly satisfying.

So where does one find these magical little packets of chia goodness?

Check out Nutrition House – specifically the one under the Bay (at Bloor).  Or Healthy Planet, located on the Danforth.
