Sacha Inchi

Se le conoce como el cacahuate inca, pues crece en las praderas de Perú. Es muy especial pues tiene un alto contenido de vitamina C que ayuda con enfermedades respiratorias y además, esta empaquetada de Omega 3, lo cual ayuda a bajar el colesterol y prevenir infartos.

Camu Camu

No es broma, esta fruta indígena de Perú, Colombia y Venezuela tiene 6º veces mñas la cantidad de vitamina C que una naranja regular. Esto quiere decir que en invierno no está de más tener un par de camu camus para alejar los resfriados.

Polvo de Cacao

Puedes encontrarlo en Brasil, pero también en Guatemala y aquí mismo en México. El puro cacao tiene propiedades antioxidantes, pero cuando lo muelen con pimienta y otras hiervas también obtiene cualidades energizantes.

These are RAW cacao beans, (not to be confused with coco or chocolate🍫) and have been eating them for 6+ years….but MAKE SURE IT’S #RAW! . ⚫️What is it? Cacao beans are roasted and ground to produce cocoa and, after further processing, are the basis of chocolate. When the beans are dried at low temperature, however, they are called #RAWcacao beans, which can be consumed whole, broken into pieces called nibs or ground to produce raw cocoa powder. . 🔴Antioxidants Unlike processed dark chocolate, antioxidants are preserved in raw cacao. Researchers compared the antioxidant capacity of black tea, green tea, red wine and cocoa, concluding that cocoa has the highest antioxidant activity among the four products and the greatest potential for health benefits. In addition to removing free radicals, antioxidants also help decrease inflammation that can contribute to arthritis and other diseases. . 🔵The world’s oldest human being to have ever lived (that was officially documented) was Jeanne Louise Calment of France. She lived to be 122 and many say that one of her secrets to longevity was her consumption of 2.5 pounds of bitter dark chocolate a week. The third “official” oldest person ever to have lived was Sarah Knauss, who also regularly enjoyed the health benefits of chocolate, although not in as large quantities as Jeanne! @lilsipper😘✌🏼️ . Health food stores carry the whole bean (whole foods, sprouts, iHerb, Amazon, etc) .

Ésta no es ninguna novedad, la chía ha estado cada vez más presente en los menús de las casas mexicanas y no es para menos. No sólo contiene grandes cantidades de Omega 3, sino que al comerlas se expanden en el estómago y crean una sensación de satisfacción que te hará comer menos.

Hi everyone!🙋🏻 I’m loving this chia pudding parfait today. Delicious fresh fruit enveloped in a velvety vanilla chia pudding. . Chia seeds are one of healthiest foods, known for their ability to provide sustainable energy. Did you know “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength”?! 💪🏻😎 And don’t be fooled by their size — these tiny little seeds are packed with a powerful nutritional punch (1 ounce serving contains 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, omega-3s, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, and so much more). . How do I make my #chiapudding? Here’s my detailed recipe! You’ll need: 🔹 1 cup of milk (coconut, almond, whatever you prefer). I made this using @califiafarms vanilla #almondmilk 🔹 3 tbsp of @nutiva organic #chiaseeds. You can use 4 tbsp as well to make it thicker — play around with it so you can find your preference 🔹 fresh #fruits — I used #mango, #plums, #apples, #blackberries, #banana . To make: 🔹Mix milk and chia seeds in a glass container (one you have a lid for). I love using mason jars to make my chia pudding. 🔹 Shake, shake, shake the jar now (after making sure it’s been securely tightened). 🔹 Let it sit for a few minutes. 🔹Shake, shake, shake again. You guys, this is the most important step because if you don’t, you’re going to end up with clumps of chia seeds. And you don’t want that. 🔹 Let it sit for a few more minutes and shake it a third time. The #chia seeds are plumping as they start to absorb the liquid so you want to shake it a few times to prevent them from sticking to each other. 🔹 Refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes. Or if you’re prepping the night before, let it sit overnight in tote refrigerator. 🔹 That’s it! When you’re ready to eat, enjoy straight from the jar or pour into a bowl. Top with fruits and nuts or layer them in like messy parfait as I did here. . #realandvibrant #feedfeed @thefeedfeed

Como la chía, el acai va ganando terreno en el mundo. Se trata de una mora anti inflamatoria proveniente de Sudamérica, y contiene más antioxidantes por gramos que cualquier otra mora o fruto rojo en el mercado.

Buongiorno!! Stamattina come ogni mattina ultimamente ho messo nel frullatore: – 1 banana surgelata – mirtilli – ciliegie – albicocche – una tazzina di latte di cocco – 3 cucchiai di semi di chia per renderlo più denso – qualche mora di gelso per extra dolcezza Versato nella ciotola e aggiunto scaglie di cocco, scaglie di mandorle e muesli con biscottini al caramello (trovato in un supermercato in Trentino, marca sconosciuta). È una specie di #acaibowl che va tanto di moda ma senza #Acai 😂🙆 quando vedevo questa cosa nei video pensavo “abbbbbella, bevitela te ‘sta sbobba”, però adesso ne sono dipendente soprattutto col caldo! Fresca, leggera, piena di energie e cose che fanno bene! Adesso potete scatenarvi… “Sistiana ma che minchia mangiiii ma che è pure cibo questooooo mangiati una parmigiana di melanzane (a colazione) che ti passa la pauraaaaaa” hahahahahaha! Buona Giornata a dopo! 👋🏻❤️ #buongiorno #buonagiornata #colazione #breakfast #healthy #vegan #vegano #vegetarian #superfood #food #yummy #love #kitchen #habits #routine #morning #morningroutine
