Meet my two new friends! I love these little guys! They are sooo good for you!
Where to begin?!
Let's start with goji berries. I first discovered these little guys when looking for foods that would help with infertility. Not only did I discover that goji berries help with increasing fertility naturally but recent medical research has identified several powerful medicinal properties, including: anti-aging, anti-cancer, weight loss promotion, enhancing libido as well as fertility, immune system boosting and much more. I will do a later post going into further detail!
And now for the amazing Chia seeds... How did I live without these little guys?! Their health benefits are amazing..
8 x more omega 3 than salmon
22 x more magnesium than broccoli
5 x times more calcium than whole milk
2 1/2 x more iron than spinach
2 x more potassium than bananas
2 x more fiber than bran flakes
5 x more protein than kidney beans
8 x more phosphorus than milk
equal to asparagus in folate
equal to antioxidants in blueberries
Some of the many benefits include:
lose weight & keep fit
stabilizes blood sugar levels
increase lean muscle
speed injury recovery
Okay, and while we are at it, I will introduce you to a couple more friends I used to make my super bowl concoction. Crunch flax cereal, which is basically every allergen free~soy free, dairy free, gluten free, wheat free, nut free, egg free, fish free
And my little sweetener
This is one of my favorite random breakfast concoctions! mmm!
1/2 cup of your favorite yogurt (i have used plain greek & goat yogurt)
sweetened to taste, I used vanilla liquid stevia
1/2 cup crunch flax cereal or favorite cereal
1/2 cup of berries
1 tablespoon of chia seeds
2-4 tablespoons of goji berries
Mix together & enjoy!
