Great snack recipe
Here's what I've found to help cure my cravings. It's a bit unusual, but very tasty. It contains chia seeds (yes, the pet, but the seed, not the sprouted variety--never eat a chia pet!), so here's a little blurb about the nutritious value of chia seeds, first. Then, the recipe.
Chia seeds (Salvia hispanica) are extremely high in Omega 3 and are loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber. Our Chia seeds are raw, Non-GMO, non-irradiated, and produced without pesticides.
30% of Chia seed oil is Omega 3 oil. 40% of its oil is Omega 6 oil. This is the perfect balance of essential fatty acids.
Chia seeds are great for athletes because they are highly hydrophilic, meaning they can absorb large amounts of water. They can hold 10 times their weight in water making them a great enhancer in hydrating our bodies.
Studies show that eating chia seed slows down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrate calories into simple sugars. This leads scientists to believe that the chia seed may have great benefits for diabetics.
1 cup nonfat organic plain yogurt
1-2 tbsp chia seeds
1 tsp cinnamon
tiny amount of stevia for sweetening (to taste)
1/2 cup rasperries (or any berries)
Mix all together and eat! Yummy. I hope this helps. I love it. I often eat it with a handful of cashews for a complete meal. Well, aside from the fact that there are no greens... :)
Oh, and, you can get chia seeds from nutsonline.com. That's where I get mine. Great company. Fast shipping.
