Spanish sage - is it worth eating?

Spanish sage, also known as "chia seeds", has been at the forefront of culinary super additives for a long time. The beans themselves have a neutral taste, which makes them suitable as an addition to sweet and salty dishes, thickening dishes or as super healthy meals (breakfast and afternoon tea).
Why is it worth eating chia seeds?

The popularity of Spanish sage

No wonder chia seeds have become so popular. They are a great source of calcium, potassium, magnesium, phosphorus and iron. Chia seeds are rich in protein (16,54 g in 100 g seeds), which is why vegetarians and vegans often use them. However, I think chia have so many properties that everyone should reach for these babies, regardless of their diet.
Unfortunately, chia seeds are not the cheapest, but it's surprising, since their popularity is constantly growing.

Chia seeds - who should eat them?

Studies show that chia have more omega-3 than salmon. These magic seeds should also be present in the elderly, due to memory, concentration and dementia prevention effects.
Chia seeds are rich in fiber, which is why they are recommended for people who care about the line. It is a myth, however, that chia slim down by itself. Chia seeds only support Weight Management .

Chia seeds recipes

One of the most popular ways to consume chia seeds is to add them to smoothies, baked breads or dishes including salads. Chia seeds are often used as a substitute for eggs in a vegan diet. You can eat them for breakfast as an addition - just sprinkle cereal or porridge with a spoon or two chia seeds.
A very tasty dish that can be conjured up from Spanish sage chia pudding, which with the addition of fruit can be a healthy and filling offer for breakfast.
Chia, like linseed, swells when soaked, and a slightly gelatinous coating forms around the grain. Therefore, these seeds can serve as natural thickener to dishes. Just pour a teaspoon of seeds with a little water and mix thoroughly. After a few minutes they swell and you can add them to the dish you want to thicken.
Seeds should be consumed daily in an amount of 3 teaspoons (15 g)

Chia Pudding Recipe:
- 150 ml plant or cow's milk
- 3 spoons from chia seed soup
Chia pudding is best prepared in the evening to enjoy a delicious breakfast in the morning
Pour the seeds with milk and mix. We leave for 20 minutes (mixing pudding during these 20 minutes 2 times). After 20 minutes, mix again and put in the fridge. In the morning, add fruit to the ready pudding as desired. They can be sprinkled with cinnamon and coconut flakes.

      I haven't eaten chia pudding for a long time. I have to make up for it. I'm thinking of a pudding with apple, tangerines and lots of cinnamon; D

    I bought, I did it twice and they are lying 😉 Somehow they did not captivate me 😉 But because of the properties I plan to return 😉

    I love the CHIA pudding with this recipe:

    4 spoons of oat flakes
    1 cup of vegetable milk or rice milk
    2 tablespoons CHIA seeds
    vanilla pod
    spoon of walnuts or almonds
    spoon of goji berries

      Chia seeds, oatmeal and vanilla pod I poured with lukewarm milk, mixed and put in the fridge overnight, but 2-3h is enough. In a dry frying pan I roasted a tablespoon of oatmeal, goji berries and a few pieces of nuts and sprinkled them with pudding 🙂 Delicious "layered" with pudding and home-made apple jam 🙂

    I often add chia to a smoothie after soaking in 5-10 minutes in water, are they added to muesli equally absorbed if the seeds do not have enough time to soak?

    I ate them for some time, but I didn't see any spectacular effects and my motivation died 🙂

      This is not a product from which we expect effects right away. The introduction of chia seeds into the diet can protect against diseases or have a beneficial effect on the body. This is not a product where you eat 3 teaspoons and suddenly feel the effects. What are the effects about?

    Maybe I'll find out and start using 🙂
