Here's why chia is such a great way to boost your day

You know what they say - breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But why is that? Well, when you delve deeper, you'll find that it's incredibly healthy for you. So let's break it down. First off, you've got the obvious one. Breakfast gives us the energy we desperately need to kick start our day. Spend a lot of time feeling low and sluggish? If you skip breakfast a lot, that's exactly how you're going to feel. But that's not all. A good breakfast packs an array of important nutrients that are just what the body needs early in the day. It's not all about chia seeds, but they can play a big part in a great brekkie.

So what makes for a healthy breakfast? Why not try juices for when you're really in a rush? Or perhaps something more substantial, like porridge or avocado toast? Singapore takeaways on Deliveroo offer some excellent options. But if you're looking for something to really steal the show, you should let chia show you what it's got...

1. It's chock-full of Omega 3

Chia has more Omega 3 than salmon - yes, you read that right. Omega 3 are essential, healthy fats, and that's nothing to be afraid of. Instead of shovelling down a salmon bagel or salmon with eggs in the morning, you can just enjoy a chia smoothie instead. It's easier to manage, and still full of the same great nutrients. At 1KS by Park Bench Deli, they've got the Scarry Terry smoothie. It's full of berries, banana, coconut water and chia seeds. So it tastes good, and it being good to you is a big plus.

2. It's super low in calories

How can something so full of nutrients be so low in calories? We're not sure, but it's true. If your aim is to lose weight or stave off obesity, incorporating chia into your breakfast - or other meals - will see you heading off the right way. When you're trying to diet, it can be tricky to find things that you actually like which will still do the trick. There's no worries with Choco Loco from Haakon Superfoods & Juice though, as it's got cocoa powder, chia seeds and even a cheeky bit of super-healthy coconut ice cream!

3. ...and full of antioxidants as well

So what exactly are antioxidants, anyway? Good news - one of their functions is fighting off things like cancer and disease. You probably never thought you'd get that kind of thing from a pudding, but the Summer Chia Pudding at Grounded will prove you wrong. It's full of seasonal fruits inside Greek yogurt with almond-soaked chia seeds - so it's great for breakfast, but it also works all day.

4. It'll keep you on top form

We've all had those days where we have to be on top of our game but it's just not happening for us. All that can quickly change with a little dose of chia. It's a superfood alright! Shake Farm knows the score with its delicious Hangover Healer shake, and it does what it says on the tin. Even if you haven't been out the night before, your body will still thank you! It's packed with blueberries, banana, spinach and electrolytes, in addition to chia and much more. The combination is on point, and it'll help you feel really good. So go forth and enjoy your day!

Cheers to chia! If you're looking for a substantial way to start your day, look no further than the variety of chia dishes on Deliveroo!
