Spotlight On: Chia

Spotlight On: Chia

This article is part of our Spotlight On series. Each month we shine a light on a powerful and important superfood that we love at Foodhak for its flavour and its impact on your body.

Small but mighty, chia is the tiny seed superfood that you should definitely be eating more of. They say the best things come in little packages, and when you find out chia's health benefits, we think you'll agree.

A quick bite

First things first, what exactly is chia? Chia seeds come from the plant Salvia hispanica, which is a member of the mint family. These seeds might be small, but they are mighty! They are loaded with nutrients like fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. It's like a nutritional powerhouse in a tiny package!

The main course

Let's break it down.

Gut Health Guru

Chia seeds are like little superheroes for your gut. They are packed with fibre, which helps keep things moving smoothly in your digestive system and ensure your gut's microbiome is happy and healthy. Say goodbye to those sluggish days!

Energy Booster

Feeling a bit low on energy? Chia seeds got your back! They are a fantastic source of slow-release carbohydrates, which means they provide a steady stream of energy throughout the day. No more crashing and burning after that mid-afternoon snack!

Bone Builder

Move over, milk! Chia seeds are here to strengthen your bones. They are loaded with calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus, all essential minerals for maintaining strong and healthy bones. So, go ahead and sprinkle some chia on your cereal or yogurt!

Heart's Best Friend

Your heart will thank you for adding chia seeds to your diet. These little wonders are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease. It's like giving your heart a big, warm hug!

Weight Loss Warrior

If shedding a few pounds is on your to-do list, chia seeds can be your secret weapon. They are high in fibre and protein, which can help you feel fuller for longer. No more raiding the fridge at midnight!

Something to take away

Now that you know all about the amazing benefits of chia, you're probably wondering how to incorporate it into your daily routine. Fear not, dear reader, for the possibilities are endless!

You can sprinkle chia seeds on top of your morning smoothie or yogurt for an extra nutritional boost. Or why not try making chia pudding? Just mix chia seeds with your favourite milk, add some sweetener and flavourings, and let it sit overnight. Voila! A delicious and nutritious treat to start your day.

Feeling adventurous? You can even use chia seeds as an egg substitute in baking. Just mix one tablespoon of chia seeds with three tablespoons of water, let it sit for a few minutes until it forms a gel-like consistency, and use it as you would use an egg in your recipe. Who knew chia seeds could be so versatile?

And if you're looking for chia-powered snacks, then try our Ashwagandha Choc Chip Cookies and Seeded Omega and Millet Crackers for a little boost in a delicious bite. There's a reason we include it in two of our signature dishes!

So, there you have it, folks! Chia seeds might be small, but they are mighty when it comes to health benefits. Whether you're looking to improve your gut health, boost your energy, or strengthen your bones, chia seeds have got you covered. So, go ahead and sprinkle some chia magic into your life!
