Day 6: Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie



I use Chia Seeds a lot. I first found out about then when they were sent to me to try about 18 months ago and we have used them ever since. I use them in yoghurt, on cereal, added in my baking and well as you would know by now in smoothies.

Chia Seeds are high in antioxidants and Omega 3 ALA's. They are a fantastic source of protien and do wonders for digestion.

Instead of rehashing the benefits of Chia seeds, I found you some awesome links around the web that you really should check out.
