Healthy Weight Loss—Check Out Chia!


Natural Foods:  Healthy Weight Loss-Check Out Chia!
Well for Life

Chia seeds are a great way to control appetite and aid weight loss in a healthy way.  These little seeds are an incredible source of fiber (about 11 grams per oz).  It is also the worlds richest plant-based whole food source of omega-3s (as ALA), calcium (more than triple that of milk), and antioxidants. 

Incorporating chia seeds into your diet on a regular basis can help regulate blood sugar, aid in digestion and help you feel satisfied, so that you eat less, and lose weight. 

Chia seeds do not have a flavor so you can add them to almost any food you want.  Bake with them by soaking 2 tablespoons of seed in 1/2 cup of water and let them sit for 10—15 minutes. Use the gel that is made to replace 25 percent of the fat, oil, or eggs in your recipe for muffins, pancakes, cookies, or breads.
