Super Food Spotlight: Chia Seeds

by Neka on May 10, 2013, 6 comments

Chia seeds are one of our favorite super foods! We mix Chia into our Young Love and Warrior juices to bring a powerful nutrient-rich punch to your cleanse.

chia seed used in juiceThe word chia is actually from the Mayan language, meaning “strength,” and Aztec warriors relied on chia seed to boost energy and increase stamina.

Chia seeds have healthy omega-3 fatty oils, easily digestible protein and antioxidants that may help with diabetes, hypoglycemia and celiac disease. The seeds also have 18% of the recommended daily intake of calcium.

Unlike flax seed, chia seeds don’t have to be ground and they don’t go rancid the way flax does.

Chia will keep you fuller longer and prevent you from overeating. But be warned: Eat no more than a maximum one ounce a day per day. Because chia is very high in fiber, overly large amounts can cause stomach upset.

As a dietary supplement, chia seeds may be added to other foods as a topping or put into smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, made into a gelatin substance, or consumed raw. Partly because there is no perceptible shell, addition of chia seeds to other products may not alter taste.

Chia is fantastic for kids too. It doesn’t change the way the food tastes, though it does give it a bit of a crunch. Consider tossing a  bit of chia in pancake or waffle mix. This won’t alter the taste but will give your breakfast a bit of fun crunch.

This ease is precisely what makes chia such a winning super food. Whether making it into a pudding, used as an egg substitute for the veggie folks, the same benefits can be found simply by tossing a teaspoon into yogurt, oatmeal or smoothie.

What are your favorite ways to use chia seeds?

Haven’t tried them yet? We toss them in our Young Love and Warrior juices to give you a nutrient boost.

This often includes finding a new fashion sense and dressing at least in your teen's mind like an individual. That said, your teen's somewhat skewed sense of style may need a helping hand at times. Decide if you really want bridal shoes to wear for 1 day only. The ultimate bridal shoes will go perfect with your wedding dress, but you will have a hard time matching them with regular outfits. It's fine if that's what you really want, but it may do you good to remember that "perfect" doesn't have to be "impractical".. Competition: A Major ThreatThe competitive rivalry within the retail industry is the major threat that Coach is currently facing. Coach currently holds 28% of the US handbag market. The figure below shows that a major chunk of Coach's revenue comes from sales of women's handbags. Enter into this a surprisingly complex tale about revenge and family. The capital of Area 11 has been devastated and the central part of it is now made up of a massive Brittania stronghold. The areas surrounding it are in ruins and are being demolished to make way for new expansions and to push down the Elevens even more. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a bus for a vampire. This is the world of Mercy Thompson, one that looks a lot like ours but is populated by those things that go bump in the night. He was a very well educated man. He studied Art History at the University of Monpellier, and then in 1971 enrolled at the Sorbonne in Paris. Lacroix had aspired to be a museum curator and so went to complete a program in museum studies at the Ecole du Louvre. The sidekick played the role of a Greek chorus, providing exposition while giving the hero someone to talk to and the reader someone to relate to. But oftentimes, this meant that they got shortchanged in the costume department. Despite being bastions of truth and justice dedicated to righting wrongs and sticking up for the downtrodden, a hero remains a vain person at heart and in order to maintain their superiority and popularity, they often clad their sidekicks in degrading and humiliating outfits. The sporty trend is a little more difficult to pull off since there isn't one basic characteristic you can look for. The upside of this is the versatility and ability to pull off this look with items already in your closet. The sporty trend falls into four simple categories according to fashion experts, "the tomboy, the sporty flapper, the urban dancer, and the Bond bombshell." On the casual to formal scale, this fad falls somewhere between gym wear and weekend, glamorous casual..canada goose outlet
