{Shakeology Ingredient Spotlight} CHIA SEEDS!

What makes the Shakeology ingredient chia seeds so special?

Chia seeds are an AMAZING FOOD. Even though you probably are just thinking of those funny chia pets… I knew your mind went there! smile emoticon

But those seeds are for so much more than growing a plant shaped like a dog! smile emoticon {Yes, they are the same seeds!}

According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, one ounce of chia seeds contains 138 calories, 8 grams of fat, 12 grams of carbohydrate, 10 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein.

Eating one ounce of chia seeds per day would provide 18% of daily calcium needs, 27% of phosphorus, 30% of manganese and smaller amounts of potassium, zinc and copper.

When compared to flaxseed, chia seeds provide more omega-3s, calcium, phosphorus and fiber – all essential nutrients that most people are not getting enough of.

Chia seeds expand when you swallow them, helping you stay hydrated by gripping onto that water that you drink. They also help keep you full, because they expand with that water in your belly. So win-win! Serious super food. smile emoticon Tiny but packed with a huge nutritional punch!

*If you eat chia seeds dry, be careful because they could possibly expand in your throat and cause you to choke. They’re gross plain though, so I’m glad they’re mixed into Shakeology. But just wanted you to be aware in case you just toss some into your mouth, be careful with how many at a time because they’ll expand! 🙂
