Salba Seeds - aka Chia Pet Flour

Last posted 1-18-11

Is your Chia Pet a powerhouse of energy? Dr. Oz says Yes! Your iconic hobby is healthy, and you didn't even know it! It's also Gluten-Free!

Remember when I blogged about chia flour? (Oct 2008) Well, here it is again under the name of a variation of the white seed, Salba. My friend Lori says her doc (also GF) recommends it and so I thought I'd bring it out for some discussion. The rumor mills says it has the following:

6 x calcium of milk
3 x antioxidants of blueberries
3 x more iron than spinach
8 x more omega3 than salmon
2.5 x the veg. protein of beans
15 x more magnesium of broccoli
2 g of fiber per tablespoon.

I'm eating overnight chia pudding.  The sister's recipe, 1 cup milk (chocolate, coconut or almond varieties) and 1/4 cup chia seeds--add cocoa or vanilla and a dash of your favorite sweetner to taste.  I just made it chocolate.  Yum.

salba seeds - Post interesting and thanks for sharing. Some things in here I have not thought about before. Thanks for doing the cool-down, which is really good written. I will refer more friends about this. This is one of the charismatic, informatics blog and a good book about life at most that have been described in the special features to help readers and visitors. All information found here is genuine and realistic.
