Salba Smart: A healthy New Year starts with breakfast! (Giveaway)

"You’ve probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but do you know why? Just like cars need gas, our bodies need fuel for energy, clarity and overall good attitudes. Eating breakfast also increases metabolism, and studies have shown weight loss is easier for those who eat breakfast. When you keep your body from getting the fuel it needs, there’s a tendency to overeat during lunch and dinner. Similarly, eating the right breakfast foods can help boost your day."

Here are some great facts about Salba Chia Seeds!
Salba Chia Gram for Gram provides . . .
325% more fiber than oatmeal
800% more Omega-3 (ALA) than salmon (EPA/DHA)
30% more antioxidants than blueberries (based on ORAC values)
1500% more magnesium than broccoli
200% more potassium than bananas

Here’s Salba Smart’s guide to a healthy breakfast: 

· Eggs – You’ve probably seen all the commercials for the “Incredible Edible Egg,” and here’s why: eggs are a great source of protein, which gives you energy for the day, and contains nutrients like Vitamin D.

· Oatmeal – It’s such a classic breakfast food, but it’s often overlooked. Oats are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, folate and potassium. Whether you cook on a stove, grab a pouch to-go, or heat in the microwave, oatmeal is a quick and filling breakfast that gets the job done. Plus, it’s one of the best foods to add Salba Chia seeds for a boost of fiber, protein and iron.

· Greek Yogurt – Another great grab-n-go option, greek yogurt is packed with calcium and protein, and mixing in fruit can add sweetness and flavor.

· Grapefruit – Add a little sweetness to breakfast by eating grapefruit. The tart, tangy and sweet fruit is filled with Vitamin C, which can help reduce cold symptoms, as well as Vitamin A and fiber.

The best part? You can add more nutrition to these foods by just sprinkling on 1 Tablespoon of Salba Chia Whole Seeds!
