Chia Seed

An ancient, South American seed that has become very popular in NZ. Often sprinkled on salads and cereals or added to bliss balls, bread, muffins & smoothies. To make a nourishing gel, soak the seeds in water (approx. 1 Tblspn. to ½ cup water), and add it to smoothies, shakes, yoghurt, soups and dressings. This gel slows down the release of carbohydrates in the body, which keeps you feeling fuller for longer.


Chia seeds are tasteless but very nutritious: high protein content, Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids and soluble fibre, as well antioxidants and trace vitamins and minerals. These fatty acids are essential, because our bodies can’t make them, but need them to stay healthy.
