What are the benefits of Chia Seeds?
Recently I have been talking a lot about the health benefits of chia seeds and how to incorporate them into your diet. First of all, they are high in fibre and protein and can take up 10-12 their weight in water, therefore they are very weightloss-friendly.
Personally, I like to add them to my breakfast (Chai Chia Seed Pudding Recipe) and bakes (Best Healthy Chocolate Brownie Ever) whenever I can.
In this particular Raspberry Jam with Chia Seeds, they replace the usual thickening agents.
Why eating more raspberries is good for your health!
Due to their rich colour, sweet juicy taste and antioxidant power, it is no wonder that raspberries remain one of the world’s most consumed berries.
Many studies suggest that the high content of flavonoids helps to improve the memory and lowers the risk of death from cardiovascular disease
Raspberry Jam With Chia seeds can also be added to sweeten your yoghurt, porridge, or simply be enjoyed on a delicious Sourdough Rye Bread.
