S uperfoods are healthy, nutritious and literally everywhere now. EVERYWHERE. I came across trendy farro in Melbourne, quinoa already back in my days in London and now the ultimate superfood – chia seeds – only a couple of weeks ago in Panama in form of a delicious pudding topped with the freshest fruits of choice when out for breakfast at LaLo’s Fruteria y Más after a workout.
That was also when I remembered, I still had a unopened package of chia in my pantry and I was curious where else the little power seeds can be helpful with – I think I found the perfect way, keep scrolling.
Chia seeds are apparently one of the healthiest foods on our planet, unbelievable as they at first simply look like poppy seeds. But they are way better for you and I have a blog post to to share with you what positive effects they have on your body, especially when you are active and on the go a lot.
In the meantime, I will try “brinner” tonight and have my beloved flax meal buns topped with this delicious – SUGAR-FREE – paleo jam.
Tip: many years I opted for jam instead of nutella when it came to breakfast, but taking a closer look now I might have as well indulged in the famous hazelnut spread.
Many store bought jams contain a heaping amount of added sugar – make sure you read the labels or simply make your own and control how much sugar you add to fruits, which contain fructose already and are naturally sweet.
