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.
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?
