Chia what?

Did you know that chia seeds have a high inflammation factor rating? They rate a 77 according to Self Nutrition Data which means they are great in helping reduce inflammation! They also have a glycemic load of 1, so they will not cause spikes in blood sugar! In just 1 ounce of chia seeds there are 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein with an amino acid score of 115 which translates to a high quality protein! Chia seeds meet 18% of your required calcium intake! As for omegas, 1 ounce contains 4915 mg of Omega-3 and 1620 mg of Omega-6.

How cool is that?

So this morning I made myself a tasty raw breakfast using chia seeds!

Here’s the recipe!
