Do you keep hearing about chia seeds?

They are PERFECT for busy brides!

Chia seeds are teeny tiny black seeds with a huge amount of nutritional value. These small but mighty seeds contain, protein, omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, calcium & fiber. Talk about getting bang for your buck!

If you’ve never tried them, you should! They don’t have much of a taste, but add a delicious crunchy texture to your foods. They are great when added to smoothies, mixed with granola, mixed into beverages (have you tried Chia Kombucha?) or sprinkled over yogurt.

When in contact with a liquid, chia seeds create a gel that forms around the seed. This gel works wonders for hydrating the body! Not only is chia hydrating and delicious, but due to its high fiber content the seeds are tremendously filling as well.

Brides, try adding this awesome superfood into your lifestyle for a totally natural energy boost and let me know what you think!
