Food Friday – The Chia Co Chia Shots

In my July beauty box from Birchbox I received a Chia Shot from The Chia Co. It contained 8g of black chia seeds, which actually is naturally a mixture of black and white seeds. The white seeds are specially selected to make the white seed products!

Chia seeds are a source of omega 3, dietary fibre, protein and antioxidants. Chia promotes heart health, joint mobility and flexibility, and aids a healthy digestive system. I tried the seeds sprinkled on my very boring salad and very dull porridge. Here’s the salad:

The seeds don’t taste of anything at all really, they just added an extra crunch to my salad. In the porridge they seemed to swell slightly, but again no noticeable taste. I think it’s a great, easy way to get some extra fibre and goodness in your diet.

You can buy a pack of 8 Chia Shots for £4.79 from http://www.thechiaco.com.au/content/chia-shots-10-x-8g-uk.

Have you tried chia seeds? Are there any other superfoods you’d recommend?

  1. I've been meaning to find chia seeds somewhere, they are in so many recipes I find yet I've never tried them! Sounds great they don't taste of anything, I would sneak them into smoothies! ;)

  3. I've been curious about these for a little while. It's great that they don't taste of anything, tempted to put some in with my morning porridge!
