The word chia means “strength” in the Mayan language and it is believed that the Mayans, along with the Aztecs and Incans, used chia as a staple in their diets. Supposedly, the warriors would use them for energy during long distance runs or during battle. Consuming chia seeds is a great way to up your intake of essential fatty acids, protein, minerals and vitamins A, B, E and D. Just be sure to drink your smoothie right away, as chia seeds turn to a gel-like consistency once wet; quickly turning your milkshake into a thickshake!

 

 

These tasty little blue morsels are great for a multitude of reasons. Low in fat, blueberries are loaded with antioxidants that can help neutralise free radicals. One serving of blueberries also gives you 25 per cent of your daily vitamin C, which we all know is important to support a healthy immune system.
