Why add chia seeds?

They’re packed with nutrients, are a great addition to any healthy diet, and help the body run as a well-oiled machine. Some benefits of this inexpensive superfood:

  • Anti-inflammatory properties and beneficial effects on cardiovascular health
  • Great for digestive health
  • Creates an optimal environment for a long, slow release of energy, without spiking blood-sugar levels
  • Filled with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that fight against free-radicals which damage cells and contribute to aging, cancer, and other health conditions

A few tips:

  • So many nut butters are made with an array of not-so-great (highly processed) ingredients. Choose nut butters made with only the nut and a limited amount of salt (basically, the nut ground up into nutty goodness and occasionally a limited amount of salt… nothing else).
  • Most granola is HIGH in sugar and made with refined sugar, vegetable oils, and artificial ingredients, To take the guesswork out of knowing if your granola is a healthy addition to your Nuts and Nibs Banana Split or nothing more than a real-food imposter, try making your own, A few of our favorites: Chocolate Lover’s Granola, Crunchy Maple Coconut Granola, or Crunchy Pumpkin Spice Granola.
  • For a snack-sized portion, cut your banana in half and save the rest for later.
