Today we are putting the spotlight on some more seeds and herbs that you can add into your juices and daily nutrition.
Despite the media hype, there is nothing new about Chia seeds. Chia seeds have been around since the Aztec and Mayan cultures!
Chia comes from the Mayan word which means strength and these South American seeds certainly pack a punch! They are great for improving the functioning of the brain and heart due to the omega 3 content.
Chia seeds are perfect for vegans and non-vegans alike, as unlike other plant based options, they are actually a complete protein - meaning, they contain all the essential fatty acids!
Chia seeds are also rich in fibre, iron calcium and antioxidants. So perfect for improving digestive health and healthy red blood cells.
These powerhouse seeds have a very neutral taste and can easily be added to soups and smoothies. Due to its gel like consistency when mixed with water, Chia seeds are often used as an egg replacement in vegan baking.
