National Chia Day

Today March 23rd is National Chia Seed Day! This day recognizes the tiny, yet powerful chia seed that has earned a reputation for being one of the MOST nutrient-rich foods on the planet!
Per gram Chia seeds have 

8x more omega -3s than salmon
2x more potassium than bananas 🍌
6x more calcium than milk
25% more fibre than Flax seed
30% more antioxidants than blueberries
Today I'm enjoying a Table Spoon of Chia seeds in my over night oats for breakfast for ‪#‎nationalchiaday‬
I'll be filming an overnight oats tutorial tonight for my YouTube channel and will share it here as well!
The recipe I used for todays over night oats is...
1/2 cup whole oats
1 Tbsp Chia Seeds
1 Tbsp almond slivers
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Handful of organic dried cranberries
Almond milk until it covers oats (equal parts dry to wet is the key)
1 Tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla extract
Put all dry ingredients into jar, add in almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla. If needed add in extra almond milk to ensure equal parts wet to dry for perfect consistency.
Screw on lid and place into the fridge over night.
Warm for 2 minutes in microwave if desired and serve with a scoop of natural peanut butter!

Mamma Chia has officially designated March 23rd as National Chia Day with the registrar of National Day Calendar!
