CHIA Seeds - Black or White. Nature's SuperFood.

By The Natural City on September 6, 2013 in Nutrition | comments

Chia is a fantastic way to enhance your daily diet with a bonus nutritious boost. Chia has a pleasant mild nutty taste and can be added to any food or beverage without altering the original flavour.

We recommend a daily serve of 15 grams which is the equivalent of 1 level tablespoon.

Chia can be sprinkled over salads, cereals and muesli or incorporated into breads, muffins, slices, cookies or porridge.

Why not try Chia as a gel? When mixed with water (ratio - 1 tablespoon of Chia to 1 cup of water), Chia seed forms a unique nourishing gel that can be added to smoothies, juices, breakfast shakes, herbal teas, yogurts, soups, salad dressing or sauces.
