After a week full of junk food and alcohol, I decided it’s time to make some changes in my diet.
Being a vegetarian may sound a bit tricky for some of you, but personally I can´t keep my hands away from any fruit, vegetable or in general organic products.
I returned home unable to wait one more minute before I start tasting all of what I bought.
I am going to post a list of what I bought down below in order to give some inspiration to all of you that want to start a healthy diet.
– Chia seeds
– Whole grain bread
-and different kinds of pasta (yes, I am another spaghetti lover)
I made a bit of a research about chia seeds and thats what I found:
Chia comes from the Mayan word for “strength”.
These seeds are bursting with nutrients, fiber & very few calories.
Two tablespoons of Chia seeds contain:
- Fiber 11 grams
- Protein 4 grams
- Fat 9 grams ( 5 of which are Omega 3/6 )
- Calcium 18% recommended daily allowance ( rda )
- manganese 30% rda
- magnesium 30% rda
- Phosphorus 27% rda
- Zinc, Vitamins B1, B2, B3, Niacin & Potassium
- Calories 137
And lastly some surprising beauty benefits of chia seeds are:
-They can help you lose weight
-They reduce stress
-Makes your skin glow
-They have more calcium than milk which means strong bones and teeth
-They can banish bloat
According to all of this information Chia seeds appear to be the best vitamin supply, so why not give it a try?
