What are the Healthy Benefits of Having a Chia Seed?
Chia Seeds have a lot of benefits:
- High-fibre, high-protein, low-calorie, low-carbohydrate food: I don’t think I need to go into further detail about how amazing it is nutritionally. Keep in mind that consuming these nutrients will increase lean muscle mass, fitness endurance, and metabolism.
- Helps with weight loss: Dietary restrictions and regular exercise are necessary for weight loss; there is no magic bullet. Although they don’t promise to help you lose weight, chia seeds help you feel fuller for extended periods of time, which can help you avoid overeating.
- Beneficial to your bones: Chia seeds, with their high calcium content, are a perfect supplement to any vegan’s diet.
- Beneficial to your heart: Research has indicated that chia seeds can reduce blood pressure, reverse inflammation, and manage cholesterol, all of which serve to safeguard your heart.
How to Eat Up Chia Seed?
As we have already talked about what is chia seed and how many nutritious diets are in it. You can eat this seed in various ways. Let’s get into the points of how to eat this healthy chia seed.
- As a ‘condiment’ on my bread: If you like nuts and nut butter, you may spice up your toast with a sprinkle of the seeds.
- To make water with chia seeds: Infused in it, just put one tablespoon of chia seeds into a bottle. Shut the bottle’s cap and give it a good shake. Soak the seeds for several hours or perhaps overnight. You can garnish the cocktail with your preferred seasonal fruits (strawberries, oranges), but it needs to be finished in a few hours.
- Breakfast bowl: I discovered this dish online and love it. This bowl never fails to provide me with a nutritious start to my day. In a mixing bowl, mash one medium or two tiny bananas. Add 3-4 teaspoons chia seeds. Add one cup of milk, a teaspoon of vanilla essence (optional), and a pinch of cinnamon to the mixture. Place it in the fridge overnight, then top with nuts the next morning and serve.
- Add-ons: Another easy method to absorb these seeds is to add them to almost everything, from cake/pancake batter to salads, smoothies (chia lassi is delicious!) and even lentil curry (dal). However, if you eat them raw, it is critical that you drink plenty of water.
