CHIA SEEDS!

9 replies 117 views Edited Feb 4, 2013

So I'm on a bit of a health kick changing my lifestyle and all and my wife ran across this little nuggett of a super food which I wasn't aware of. Chia seeds! Yes the same ch ch ch chia pet seeds you are thinking of.

 

They are super good for you, full of omega 3 so if you take fish oil you can get rid of that. Plus they look like poppy seeds and have a neutral flavor. We put them in yogurt.  They literally attach themselves to fat in your intestines and take it out of you body.  I highly recommend you look em up if you are interested in bettering your health.

Wow sounds interesting. 

On another note the news said earlier that mcdonlads will soon bw releasing by popular demand a mcfishbites kids meal. 

Yes that will include besides that iconic lil' box 

 mcfishbites and fries, milk and apple slices. 

Sounds completely gross to serve a kid this crap let alone combine them all in one meal. 

But this is america. And this was by popular demand. 

America, america...  

 

I'll look into that as my lifestyle ways needs a change of habits again.

Lol I saw that on Netflix the other week.  The one documentary called "Hunger for Change" lol.  I didn't know anything about chia seeds until watching.  I didn't realize the deli next to my work has the drink the whole time.  I thought it was just some fruit drink or something.

 

I already take fish oils, amino acids, and other supplements in my routine.  I'll give this a shot too next time I run into it.

Thats exactly how I (my wife really) heard of them!  Been taking them for a few days now. It's a big dose. Like 30 grams a day. I find mixed with low fat yogurt it's the bomb!

We purchased ours at Walgreens in the vitamin section.  You can also buy them online at Amazon in like 3 lb bags and other sizes.  You difinitely get more for your buck when you buy bigger.  1lb at Walgreens was 17$ 3 lbs on Amazon was like 30$

I can't seem to get rid of my stomach fat, so these chia seeds will be the perfect remedy in addition to exercise I guess.
