Today we’re looking at two of our organic superfoods that can help supplement your diet with healthy fats. Raw Coconut Oil and Dark Chia Seeds both have a huge variety of health benefits. However, as rich sources of healthy fats they both have in common the ability to lower cholesterol. As well as this, healthy fats have more energy per gram than carbohydrates, which means they have the potential to fire up our metabolism and successfully burn unwanted body fat.
Many populations all over the world have thrived on coconut oil for hundreds of years. It contains a certain type of saturated fat which is metabolised differently to the unhealthy saturated fats that we find in animal produce such as cheese and meat. Instead, the fat in coconut oil can be used as a quick source of energy. Moreover, cooking your food in coconut oil not only gives it a delicious flavour, but it also has the potential to reduce your appetite for the rest of the day. Therefore, it can also help in effective and successful weight loss.
Our Coconut Oil is extra virgin as well as cold pressed, ensuring it is to the highest quality and can offer maximum health benefits. This superfood has been noted for its role in cosmetics. For example, it can be used on hair and skin as a rich moisturiser and more recently, oil pulling has become a popular method to kill harmful bacteria in the mouth in the endeavour to whiten teeth naturally.
If you want to experience the enormous variety of health benefits that arise from coconut oil, see our extra virgin, cold pressed coconut oil here.
These tiny, organic seeds are full of fibre, protein, omega 3 fatty acids and are naturally gluten free. But most importantly, they are only of the most nutritionally rich foods on the entire planet. For their small size, they are a fantastic source of antioxidants.
But one of the most unique features of chia seeds is that they can hold 10-12 times their own weight in water. This means that they expand in your stomach, helping to increase the feeling of fullness. For this reason, they are a great superfood to include in your diet if you’re hoping to control your weight, as well as pack a nutritional punch. Chia pudding is a popular breakfast recipe which can be made overnight to form a porridge-like morning meal. Alternatively, they can be used as a crunchy topping to any breakfast or salad.
Moreover, for those conscious of eating fewer carbohydrates, then our dark chia seeds are the perfect supplement for your diet. They contain only one gram of carb per ounce! Tempted? See our organic, dark chia seeds here.
