Fun facts about chia seeds:

  • Bone health (ladies listen up)! If you’re lactose intolerant or looking to up your calcium intake for bone health as a woman, chia seed are a great addition to your diet. A 25g portion of chia contains 157mg of calcium, which is a significant source of calcium, more than that in 100ml of milk.

  • VERSATILE: We like to call it the cauliflower of seeds. It has a texture / composition that completely transforms depending on how you use it and it takes on flavors really well which is why it’s great as part of an overnight oat recipe. You can soak, toast, or go raw! They can add crunch to a salad or thickness to a soup or pudding. Have fun with these!

  • Vegetarian friendly: They are a great source protein (omega 3’s) and overall they have a fantastic balance of nutrients (protein, high in fiber, healthy fats) of a wide range of super healthy amino acids, vitamins, and minerals. They provide the good kind of long last, slow burning energy you need!

  • A little goes a long way: One tablespoon (tbsp) of chia seeds is enough and contains roughly 69 superfood packed calories. Go buy it in bulk and it will last you a long time.

  • Refrigerate: It’s always best to refrigerate your seeds as they will last longer but you’re not putting yourself at any risk by keeping them in the pantry. Note: chia seeds have a longer shelf life than flax seeds.
