If you haven't heard, chia seeds aren't just for pets anymore.
Rich in Omega-3's, fiber, protein, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, niacin, and zinc, and the seeds help to regulate blood sugar....basically it's the superfood of super foods. Chia seeds are similar to tapioca ball, just smaller. They don't really have a flavor, except for maybe leaning on the nutty side, so I like to think of them as a vessel to carry other flavors while delivery a super healthy and filling punch.
So the question then is what to do with these power-packed seeds? How about a real simple, healthy treat that can be breakfast or a snack?
For this recipe I made my own coconut milk. You can use store bought, but you might be shocked at how easy it is to make (5 minutes), not to mention it's cheaper and free of the extra sugar and preservative that can be found in a store brand versions.
Pets aside, put some chia seeds into your diet for a Fat and Happy nutritional boost.
