Salba Smart Chia Seeds ~ So Versatile! (**GIVEAWAY**)

This product was provided free of charge in exchange for an honest review.

Salba Smart Chia is a part of my daily routine.  I usually start my day out with chia seeds, but this product is so healthy and so versatile that you can really add it to anything.  I love the crunch they add to my breakfast foods, including yogurt, hot oatmeal, and granola, but you don’t have to limit yourself to breakfast foods or sprinkling on foods ~ chia seeds can be used for baking and much more!

Chia seeds have so much to offer, and the health benefits are quite numerous  Gram for gram, chia seeds offer:

  • 325% more fiber than oatmeal
  • 800% more Omega-3 (ALA) than salmon (EPA/DHA)
  • 30% more antioxidants than blueberries (based on ORAC values)
  • 1500% more magnesium than broccoli
  • 200% more potassium than bananas

Plus, Salba Chia is Non-GMO Project Verified – so no worrying about what you are feeding your family.

Besides breakfast foods, some of my favorite recipes for chia seeds include smoothies and energy bites.

I make banana bread all the time.  So this time, I added a couple tablespoons of ground chia seed to the mix.  It doesn’t get any easier than that!  I love that Salba chia seeds can be used for so many things, plus this way I can use it in different foods that I make for the whole family.  Because these little seeds have so many benefits, there are lots of reasons to ‘sneak’ these in where you can, so I take it upon myself to offer it in foods to my husband and kids.  Our family is vegetarian, so I am especially glad to get the extra omega-3’s that this product offers.
