Chia Seed Craze
With the summer heat dying down some of us may want to stay in the bikini-ready shape we’ve worked so hard for over the past couple of months. A great way to do so is by incorporating more chia seeds into your diet. Chia seeds deliver a massive amount of nutrients with very few calories, high antioxidant content. Most of the carbs in them are fiber which may help you lose weight. They are also high in Omega-3 fatty acids and they reduce blood sugar levels. Chia seeds are an easy ingredient to incorporate in your dishes and reap these health benefits.
