These amazing Chia seeds are tiny, nutritional dynamos – in fact, they’re the single richest source of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids.

They’re also loaded with antioxidants, protein and minerals, plus soluble and insoluble fiber to help keep your digestion moving in the right direction.
What’s more, chia seeds have an unusual property – they swell to more than 5 times their weight in liquid, so adding a spoonful or two to meals will help you feel fuller faster.

How to eat ‘em? They’re virtually tasteless, so you can drop a spoonful or two into just about anything, including smoothies, sauces, soups and salads. You can also use them as egg substitute, makes amazing pudding, can thicken sauces and gravies, also makes grain-free crackers.

Have you tried our Balinese Style Chia Pudding?

WELLNESS WEDNESDAY: KEFIR - AN ANCIENT PROBIOTIC We're back again with a very special edition of our weekly Wellness Wednesday features, brought to you by Bali Buda. This week the emphasis is entirely on your gut. So whether you're feeling bloated or otherwise unwell, make sure you read up on the benefits of keeping your gut healthy with kefir: You probably don't think about your gut very often but this may make you start--the bacteria in your gut and bowels outnumber the cells in your body by a factor of 10 to 1. This gut flora is a major player in your immune system, which of course, is your body's natural defense system that keeps you healthy. In other words, the health of your body is largely tied into the health of your gut, and it's hard to have one be healthy if the other is not. One of the reasons why your gut has so much influence on your health has to do with the 100 trillion bacteria—over 2kgs worth--that line your intestinal tract. This is an extremely complex living system that aggressively protects your body from outside offenders. Beautiful symbiosis The perfect relationship between you and your bacteria is the one where you keep them happy and they keep you happy. They are easier to please than you are. All they want is some light. You can pick that up when you are in the sun or even in artificial lighting. A little sugar makes them happy too, and current thought is that they also like reproductive hormones. Give them these three things and they will be happy. What you want from them is to be your unpaid personal bodyguards, to be willing to go to war against unfriendly bacteria, viruses, pathogens and foreign invaders to defend you. When they are up to the task of winning those wars you will stay healthy and able to maintain your positive outlook. You also want your bacteria to help you out with digestion of the food you eat, and to make sure that the nutrients from it are absorbed so you can use them well. Why probiotics are so important Probiotics are friendly bacteria similar to those found in people's guts, especially in the guts of breastfed infants who have been provided this natural protection against many diseases by their mothers. Most friendly bacteria come from the Lactobacillus or Bididobacterium groups. There are several different species of bacteria in each group. Some probiotics are also friendly yeasts. Taking probiotics is a way to keep your friendly bacteria population up to full strength so it is always at the ready to defend you. It is a way to replenish the bacteria that are killed off by the pesticides and chlorine. If you have taken antibiotics, taking probiotics is even more important because you probably have unfriendly micro-organisms living in your gut that your reduced levels of friendly bacteria are having difficulty handling. Taking probiotics will increase and strengthen your friendly bacteria population to a level that will allow it to oust the intruders. History of Kefir: Magical grains There is a legend among the Islamic people living on the northern slopes of the Caucasus Mountains that Mohammed gave kefir grains to Orthodox Christians, thereby teaching them to make kefir. Called the “Grains of the Prophet,” they were jealously guarded by their owners, as they believed the grains would lose their potency if the secret of their use became common knowledge. Thus, kefir grains were secretly passed from one generation to the next, closely guarded as part of the wealth of each family within the tribe, and although foreigners were sometimes given kefir to drink—Marco Polo recounts tasting kefir in the book of his eastern travels—the method of making kefir was kept secret and the drink was all but forgotten until the 19th century. Kefir may be the best way to take probiotics Kefir is a creamy, drinkable yogurt style fermented milk that tastes something like buttermilk. It's full of naturally occurring bacteria and yeast living in symbiosis as the result of the fermentation process. Kefir is loaded with vitamins, minerals and easily digested protein. It can even be consumed by the lactose intolerant because the yeast and bacteria provide an enzyme called lactase, an enzyme which consumes most of the lactose left after the culturing process. Kefir is fermented by kefir grains that contain the bacteria and yeast mixture clumped together with casein (milk protein) and complex sugars. The bacteria and yeast mixture can actually colonize the intestinal tract, a feat that yogurt cannot match. Several of the strains of bacteria in the kefir culture are not found in yogurt. The yeast in kefir is able to deal effectively with pathogenic yeasts in the body. The bacteria/yeast team cleanses and fortifies the intestinal tract making it more efficient at resisting pathogens. Because kefir is a balanced and nourishing food, it has been used to help patients suffering from AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, herpes, and cancer. It has a tranquilizing effect on the nervous system and is beneficial for people with sleep disorders, depression and ADHD. Kefir promotes healthy bowel movements when used regularly, and helps reduce flatulence. It also helps reduce food cravings by allowing the body to feel more nourished and balanced. Bali Buda stock a range of Kefir products including kefir milk, kefir coconut drinks. If you want to add the magic of Kefir into your life, pop into Bali Buda. Your gut will love you for it!
