1. Chia seeds because we love them
That is surely the easiest thing to add to your daily meals or drinks! It is also all your body might crave for: calcium, Omega 3, fibre, fatty acids and soooo much more!
Ideal for breakfast!
Do you have soy yogurt and organic muesli at home? Just mixed them together and add a spoon of chia seeds. Tadaaaaa, breakfast is ready!
You could also add it to salads or whatever stew but to be honest we don’t like it. Give it a go though because you never know!
It is a pretty controversial especially after the Açaï Bowl trend of last summer. But according to Texas A&M University researchers, Açaï has many benefits, such as promoting heart health, improving the skin condition, helping digestion, boosting energy and fighting ageing effects (among others).
