But before I get into the recipe I want to share some nutritional benefits of chia seeds!
Nutritional Benefits of Chia Seeds
- Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. They’re loaded with fiber, protein, omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients.
- Chia seeds are high in antioxidants that help protect the delicate fats in the seeds. They also have various benefits for health.
- Almost all of the carbohydrates in chia seeds are fiber. This gives them the ability to absorb 10–12 times their weight in water. Fiber also has various beneficial effects on health.
- Chia seeds are high in quality protein, much higher than most plant foods. Protein is the most weight loss friendly macronutrient and can drastically reduce appetite and cravings.
- They are high in protein and fiber, both of which have been shown to aid weight loss. However, studies on chia seeds have provided mixed results.
Did you also know?
- Chia seeds are high in the omega-3 fatty acid ALA. However, humans are not good at converting this into DHA, the most important omega-3 fatty acid.
- Studies on the effects of chia seeds on heart disease risk factors are inconclusive. Some studies suggest benefits, others do not.
- High in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus and protein. All of these nutrients are essential for bone health.
- Studies show that chia seeds may lower the rise in blood sugar after a high-carb meal, possibly benefiting people with type 2 diabetes.
- Limited evidence suggests that eating chia seeds may reduce an inflammatory marker known as hs-CRP. However, the health benefits are uncertain and more studies are needed.
So try incorporating chia seeds into your diet like with my Vegan Rose Jelly Chia Pudding.
Tips for making jellies:
- Always whisk your ingredients before you bring you even heat your jelly mixture. This allows for a smooth combination
- Once your pour your jelly into your mold or glass, do not touch it. Wait for it to set before moving it to the refrigerate
- I also recommend sealing your container with a lid or the jelly will dry out.
- To make diagonal layers, you must rest your glass on a box or a mold that will hold your glass at a 45 degree angle. Gently pour your jelly mixture in by the spoonful (1.5 tbsp) and allow it to set. Do not move it. Once it’s set, then tilt on the opposite angle and repeat.
