~3 Reasons You Want This Stuff in Your Body~
If you’re somebody who struggles with IBS, gastroparesis, Celiac disease, etc. you know how frustrating and even embarrassing it can be to head for the restroom and just get…stuck. I’ve written in the past about ways to tackle tummy trouble, but have yet to reveal that chia seeds likely play a big role in my recent transition to a symptom-free stomach. Chia seeds have even been called “The Holy Grail of Bowel Movements” because over time, they have been proven to regulate even the trickiest of tummies. The key is to consume regularly, and it couldn’t be easier. Scroll down for 5 easy ways to eat chia every day and not even notice it.
Peanut butter toast with blueberries is on of my favorite things to eat in the morning. Unfortunately, it’s not going to fill me up the way a big slab of meat or pizza might. Just a sprinkle of chia seeds on my toast keeps me fuller longer and the seeds only add about 30-50 calories. Nutritionally, chia seeds are rockstars because they are 40% fiber by weight and 14% protein. SOO you feel full, you’re not consuming hardly any added carbohydrates, and you hardly even notice the addition.
