Does This Food Help You Lose Weight, Build Muscle and Slow Down Aging?

Our health coaches are one of the things that sets Parsley Health apart from other medical practices. We know that working with a health coach helps our patients both set and reach their goals. This week, coach Samara Zelniker reveals her go-to superfood. 

My clients at Parsley Health are always asking me for great breakfast options that will keep them feeling full and energized throughout the morning. I tell them that they want something quick, easy and with tons of nutritional benefits that is also great for digestion. My ultimate go-to in this area is chia seeds. They are high in fiber and contain tons of vitamins and minerals. They are great ground or whole and have a host of long lasting health benefits that will leave you saying more, please!

What can chia seeds actually help you with?

Skin and Aging

Chia seeds have a natural phenolic (antioxidants) concentration. Antioxidants speed up the skin’s repair systems, and prevent further damage to give you that vibrant looking glow you are looking for.

Weight Loss

Chia seeds are high in fiber which helps promote bowel regularity and healthy stoosl. The rich fiber content in chia seeds also helps people feel full more quickly because they absorbs a considerable amount of water and immediately expand in the stomach when eaten.  This explains why chia curbs hunger and suppresses appetite, which can also lead to weight loss.

Are you ready to change your diet? Talk to one of our health experts to find out if Parsley Health can help you meet your goals today. 

Strong Bones

Just one ounce of chia seeds has 18% of the recommended daily amount of calcium. Calcium is fundamental to bone health and helps maintain bone strength and mass. Chia also contains boron which is another essential nutrient for bone health.

Strong Muscles

Chia seeds are also a great source of protein. This is another reason this super seed is great to consume when trying to put on lean muscle, burn fat, and balance blood sugar levels. Consuming chia seeds also enhances exercise performance the same way a Gatorade would, but without all the sugar.

Not sure how to eat them? Check out my favorite recipe.

Chia Seed Pudding (makes 1 serving) I make mine directly in a jar so it is easy to grab and go in the morning. 

1 cups of unsweetened almond milk (Califa Farms is my favorite brand)

1/3 cup of chia seeds

1 tbsp of honey (unpasteurized)

A splash of vanilla 

1. Mix all the ingredients

2. Put in jars in the fridge overnight, chia seeds will expands to make a gelatinous substance 

3. Add toppings of your choice; nuts, seeds, granola, fruits, hemp hearts, cinnamon
