chia seeds have astounding health benefits…

Chia seeds have become the staple of the modern diet. This tiny naturally gluten-free seed is another superfood that nutritionists highly recommend including in our diet.

Let’s look at some chia key points. One tablespoon of chia seeds has two grams of protein and five grams of fiber…very impressive. Including chia in a plant-based diet is especially beneficial because of the protein.

Chia seeds also contain several vitamins and minerals such as phosphorus, calcium, vitamin A, omega 3 fatty acids… to name a few. Incorporating chia into a well-balanced diet will help our body stay healthy and energized.

the blueberries…

Blueberries not only taste delicious, but they are super healthy. This is why blueberries are called a superfood. A healthy diet will impact how you feel, look, and help you live longer.

Blueberries are well known for their antioxidant and phytonutrient properties. These small berries are not shy of vitamin C and potassium, making them an excellent choice to add to your diet. Blueberries can lower your risk of cancer and heart disease. But mostly, they are known for their anti-inflammatory properties.
