Ramadan is one of the best months in the Islam calendar, a super month, what better then a start using a Superfood: Chia seeds.
Originally grown in Mexico, the seeds were highly valued for their medicinal properties and nutritional value.
The chia seed is nutrient dense and packs a punch of energy boosting power. Aztec warriors ate chia seeds to give them high energy and endurance. They said just 1 spoonful of chia could sustain them for 24 hours. Chia means “strength” in the Mayan language, and they were known as “runners food” because runners and warriors would use them as fuel while running long distances or during battle.
Slow release, keeps you full for longer, high protein & full of essential nutrients.
Chia seeds absorp upto 10 times more water and are perfect for long days fasting as they help minimise dehydration.
