I read a lot about how good chia seed is and finally I bought a pack of 200 grams from Signature Market through their online store.
Chia seed are a good source of fiber, protein, and other nutrients. I’m not gonna write down all of its benefits here, I’m just going to share what it does to my body after consuming it for a week.
I love how I can ‘play’ with the chia seed with any kind of drinks (except soda or alcoholic drinks I guess lol) or food and how I can mix and topped with almost anything such as fresh fruits, dried fruits or even nuts. Now I can enjoy my overnight oatmeal in an interesting way. Haha 😂 Why interesting? Well, for me chia seed is an interesting kind of food; superfood actually. The way it swell up after the soak, but still retain a slight crunch. I’ve been wondering how would it taste before. And it’s actually doesn’t have any particular taste or odour, it’s like eating the sago only without any crunchy bites.
After consuming chia seed for a week, I’ve noticed its benefits to my body was actually pretty awesome. I have a digestion problem. A doctor once scanned me and said one of my intestine is too small? Seriously it sounds ridiculous but maybe it’s true. I know nothing about that and he said that’s probably why I have a problem with a regular toilet visit. Now my point is, with chia seed in my drinks, I can say it helps me with the bowel thingy. It’s twice a day, everyday instead of once every three days. Okay that’s it. Not gonna talk long about that. #gross 😷 but it’s a good thing; so yay! 🙌
Another thing was, chia seed reduces my food cravings! Even my husband didn’t believe me when I said I’m not hungry when it’s already 1pm. But of course I still eat something in a very small amount. I hope it’s a good thing. But I love food?! 😂On a bright side, I can eat any food I love with the right amount for my body. So it’s true then. About chia seed helping in weight loss. I’m not in any progress of losing my weight tho….just maintaining it well. ✌😁
That’s two benefits for me. What about you guys?
I think that’s all for today and thanks for reading. Stay healthy and happy everyone! 💕
Love, Mich 🌸
