Chia Seeds as Part of a Healthy Diet

Posted on: November 21st, 2012 by admin

Lately, there has been more and more research regarding chia being added to food for nutritional gain. This research has shown that, by adding chia to chicken feed, eggs and chicken meat become rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The same applies to cattle being fed chia. Milk and meat will be enriched with omega-3s. Chia can also be added to commercially-prepared infant formulas, baked goods, yogurt, nutrition bars, etc.

Since chia has only a mild, nutlike flavor, it can be easily added to most foods as part of your daily diet. You can sprinkle ground or whole chia seeds on to cereal, in salads, or in yogurt. You can also grind them and mix them with flour, when making muffins or other such baked goods. By adding chia seeds to your diet, you will reap its many health benefits.
