Ch Ch Ch...Chia!

I absolutely love Chia Seeds. As I have mentioned before, I do not drink dairy milk due to being lactose intolerant. But I have found alternative ways to gain adequate calcium intake and that has been through consumption of Chia Seeds. 3.5 ounce servings of Chia Seeds can provide about 630 mg of calcium which offers almost five times more than what milk can. Take a look at some of the other benefits of Chia Seeds:
  • Decreases symptoms of AD/HD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder)
  • Natural Colon Cleanser / Toxins Eliminator 
  • Ability to Prevent Cancer
  • Eases Arthritis Pain
  • Builds Immune System
Chia Seeds are hard, so I soak about 2 tbs in water overnight and keep them sealed in a container. Soaking them will allow for them to become soft and jelly-like for blending in my Nutribullet for my morning smoothies. I have only purchased and used Navitas Naturals.
