Sneaky Meat-Free Proteins #1: Chia Seeds

August 16, 2014 1 min read

This is a new series I'll be doing on non-meat proteins you can eat as part of your vegetarian diet. Plus, they're also great low-fat proteins that will help you to get that muscle-building protein without overdoing it on calories! First off, chia seeds. Made famous by an infomercial of all things, they've become a staple in all "diet food" lists. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="564"] Source: www.greenme.it[/caption] Chia seeds give you about 2 grams of protein per tablespoon, which is pretty great considering they're tiny little seeds.  However, soak them in water, milk, or juice, and they expand into a grainy custard-like substance with an odd flavor. The beauty of chia is its versatility. You can add it into your fruit juices to make them thick and rich (just give the seeds time to sit, and they'll expand), or sprinkle them on top of your fruit salad for a protein boost. My wife makes an odd chocolate pudding by mixing chocolate powder with water and chia seeds. I don’t like it much, but you may find it enjoyable.
