Smoothie! Green Chia Energizer

April 10, 2013

Green Chia Energizer!Just in case you missed it, check out this past post on Ch-Ch-Ch-Chia Seeds and their amazing benefits. Chia seeds are a great addition to any diet to boost performance, energy, and weight loss. Chia seeds also help to stabilize blood sugar levels.

A brief recap: “Chia seeds are native to Southern Mexico and Guatemala, and are from a species of flowering plant that is in the mint family. In pre-Columbia times, chia was a staple in Aztec and Mayan diets and even used as a survival ration. The seeds are rich in omega-3’s even more so than flaxseed, and they offer a great dose of nutrients including: calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, potassium etc. In addition as I mentioned already, they are a good source of protein, antioxidants, and dietary fiber. Based on a 2,000 calorie diet, 1 oz of chia seeds provide 9% of the Daily Recommended Value for protein and 42% dietary fiber.” Chia can be eaten alone and sprinkled in salads, soups, etc., soaked in water and eaten as a porridge or pudding mixed with a natural sweetener, nut milk, and toppings, or you can add the chia gel to any kind of smoothie for a nice nutritional boost. -XoXo Raw Girl
