Green smoothies are all the rage these days, but even more popular is the use of chia seeds in smoothies, cooking, baking, and even as an egg replacer. Chia seed health benefits include one of the richest plant-based sources of Omega-3 fatty acids, excellent source of fiber, rich in antioxidants, helps you feel fuller longer, gluten free, works as an egg replacer, helps regulate insulin levels, can be digested whole (unlike flaxseed), one serving has 18% RDA of daily calcium, good source of protein, and many more!
Adding Chia Seeds to your green smoothies just makes your smoothie that much better. It doesn’t change the flavor, but adds so much nutrition that it’s almost a no-brainer. Pick up a bag at Whole Foods, buy some in bulk on Amazon, or start with a tiny bag from your grocery store if you can find it.
Check out some of these awesome recipes that all include chia seeds. There is such a variety that I’m sure there is something that you will like.
