Reasons To Eat Chia Seeds
🥰 They’re a superfood, which means they’re super-high in all the good stuff.
🥰 Chia are particularly good for your health because of the fibre – they have LOADS of the stuff.
🥰 Fibre is the forgotten nutrient that no-one talks about that much. It’s about SO much more than moving your bowels (at least once a day, ideally). Fibre is good for lowering cholesterol. Fibre keeps you full, so it’s helpful for weight loss and management.
🥰 Fibre helps to reduce the sugar load of a meal because it slows the release of the glucose, literally catching it in the fibre strands and holding it back. That means fibre balances your blood sugar, the most important thing for your health and perimenopause, ever.
🥰 Chia seeds are nutrient-dense (obvs, or I wouldn’t be talking about them!).
🥰 Chia seeds are good for bone density, heart health and disease prevention. We can thank the high levels of antioxidants and minerals for these effects.
🥰 Chia seeds have been shown to support weight loss.
🥰 They are also super-easy to prep – this recipe takes minutes to put together.
