Have you tried Chia Seeds?
Honestly, I have not tried them but I plan on buying some this week at the grocery store!
I found this picture on Bob's Red Mill website and since I love their brand flaxseed, I might as well try their chia seeds...anybody tried them?
These have been labeled another superfood. Being the highest vegetable source of omega-3 fatty acids, plus being packed with other valuable vitamins and minerals, I can see why they've become so popular in the health industry! They are 20% Protein and a good source of soluble fiber. They help to regulate blood sugar for diabetics and are naturally gluten free.
When changed into a gel-form by adding water, they take longer to digest which will help you feel fuller, longer. The seeds may also be eaten whole and are said to taste great with salads, granola, oatmeal, breads, yogurt and MORE!
I'll let you know how they taste as soon as we try them as a family!
*Yes, I will totally add them to things for several weeks before letting my husband and kids know they are in the foods they are eating :) Ha, I'm so sneaky!
Have a great, nutritious food you've tried lately that I need to know about?!
I'm always up for trying new things!
Today's Workout: Went pretty good, considering I had taken so many days off to cure this darn sinus infection :( I did 3 miles at a fairly good pace, but I can feel that my distance will be a problem for now, since my breathing is all screwed up from coughing/sneezing/etc! Blah! Have I mentioned how much I HATE being sick? I hate it!
I believe that my half marathon is 26 weeks away?!...which may sound like a LOT, but I'm starting to get nervous!!!
