My perfect snack – Yogurt, berries, and Chia seeds

With the weather turning warmer (let’s hope). I find myself making up my FAVORITE mini-meal or snack. It’s refreshing, healthy, and has the carbs and protein needed after or before a workout. I eat this at least once a day and sometimes 2 x a day.  To the recipe…

1 6-8 oz container of yogurt of choice (greek, soy, low-fat, goat, coconut, etc)

1 c+ of berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, or a mix)

1 small banana (optional, I add it when I am really hungry)

1 tbsp chia seeds

What are chia seeds? Chia was cultivated by the Aztecs and thought as a “power food”. Chia is one of the best plant sources of Omega 3 oils especially linolenic acid (ALA). These essential fatty acids found in Chia seeds support cardiovascular health, comfortable joint mobility, immune system function and cellular energy. Chia is high in vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, potassium, phosphorous.

  2. I’ve never had my own chia pet or chia head or whatnot, but they look cool on TV. I just eat the seeds and I swear, they help sooo much as far as energy and feeling good throughout the day goes. I honestly started feeling so much better on a day-to-day basis after I started putting them in my smoothies about a year ago. The one’s I get are Chia Pure. Chia Seeds Right Now they are even buy 1
