Still craving some sweetness after the holidays? Enjoy this delicious sweet chia fruit salad without putting on the extra pounds, and actually, you may even lose some weight. Citrus fruits like grapefruit, pineapple, and orange help you fight hunger because they are packed with fiber and water. Adding chia seeds to the salad is like putting a cherry on top. These tiny seeds are packed with nutritional power. The seeds themselves taste rather bland, so you can add them to pretty much anything. Chia seeds are packed with protein, fiber, omega-3, calcium, manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, vitamin B3, B1, and B2 which is all good for your skin, heart, weight-loss, and just overall health.
