Chia: The Complete Guide to the Ultimate Superfood
Dr Wayne Coates is on a mission to spread the word about ‘chia’ – a little superfood that was used by the Aztecs for centuries and that he has been studying since 1991.
In his book, Coates explains how the seed is a gluten-free natural appetite suppressant that helps regenerate muscle, sustain energy and balance blood sugar. With more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and more fibre but fewer carbs than rice, grains and corn, chia provides a complete source of dietary protein.
Chia: The Complete Guide to the Ultimate Superfood is published by Sterling (price £9.99 ISBN: 9781402799433) and covers the history and benefits of chia, plus recipe ideas.
Chia can be bought in Holland & Barrett.
