Nutrient Dense Salad Topper
I whip this bad boy up in a flash to have on hand in the fridge. It takes me about 5 minutes to make and both my husband and I gobble it up on every salad we make. I love using these seeds because they are jam packed with such goodness it blows my mind, how such a small thing can provide so many health benefits.
My favourite seeds to use are ground flax, ground chia and hemp seeds. You could add anything your heart desires. I use these ones because I like the taste and they are so dang healthy. Here are a few of the health benefits
High in Omega-3 fatty acids
Health at Harvard says just two tablespoons of chia seeds (1 ounce or 28 grams) contain about 140 calories, 4 grams of protein, 11 grams of fiber, 7 grams of unsaturated fat, 18% RDA (recommended daily allowance) for calcium, and trace minerals including zinc and copper. They are the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds are a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body. Wozers, YES! All in these tiny little seeds.
This simple little mix to your salad can really help fuel your body and help fill you up.
