by Organic Condiments on November 11, 2021

Many dishes and preparations can be made to have organic chia seeds on a daily basis. Be it pudding, smoothie, crackers or toppings, chia seeds can be added to many foods and dishes.

Organic chia seeds are one of the most nutritious seeds you can find around you. They are protein packed with three times more iron content than spinach, contain double the amount of potassium content than bananas and a great source of fibre which also helps aid digestion. These may be really tiny seeds, but don’t be fooled by their size, these seeds have gained popularity recently as one of the most nutritious superfoods. The word "chia" itself means "strength," derived from traditional Mayan language.

Organic Chia seeds can be used in a variety of different ways because of their mildly nutty flavour and their nutritious value. Add them to a desert or a savoury dish to get you an extra pump of energy. Try these simple ways to incorporate organic chia seeds in your meal:

  1. Make a pudding:

You can make a tasty pudding by simply combining dairy or non-dairy milk alternatives with organic chia seeds. Making these puddings cannot get any easier. Organic Chia seed pudding is a great way to start off your day and make a breakfast option or make a healthy dessert with it. Use 1 cup of any choice of milk or non-dairy alternative like almond or coconut milk with 3 tablespoons organic chia seeds, mix them well, and refrigerate it overnight. The key rule for this easy chia seed pudding is the ratio of 3 tablespoons chia seeds to 1 cup milk. You can also add in some fruits, nuts or even spices like cinnamon or cardamom, and the pudding options are endless.

  1. Make a jam:

Toss those highly-processed and sugar packed jams in the trash and make your own healthy version at home with zero preservatives or added colours. Making jams at home comes with the comfort of adding fruits of your choice as just about every fruit can be combined with organic chia seeds to create an awesome flavourful jam. Since chia seeds turn liquid into a jelly-like consistency, all you need to do is mash up your favourite fruits and combine them with organic chia seeds. The ratio for this can be 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to every 1 cup of mashed fruit. This ratio will create the best consistency without any preservatives or additives.

Don't miss out on this simple way to get the most out of a smoothie. All you need is 1 tablespoon of organic chia seeds, a fruit of your choice, 2 tablespoons of cacao powder and 1 cup of milk. Combine all the ingredients and all your preference of ice (optional) in a blender. Mix on high speed for a minute. Check the consistency and add more milk if necessary. Blend the mixture again for 30 seconds and voila enjoy your delicious healthy smoothie.

  1. Make a crust for your meats or fish:

Instead of coating your meat or fish in starchy white flours, you can use a cup of corn flour or almond flour with 1 tablespoon of organic chia seeds to get a fat-burning crust for your meats. You can even add some of your favourite organic spices to add delicious flavour and work those into the mix to enhance the aroma and rev up the nutritional value. Use spices like organic turmeric and organic garlic powder, which are proven to be both great ingredients and also help lower the risk of heart diseases. These should be baked ideally and not fried, to keep all the nutrition intact.
