The Perfect Little Food

by on Mar.28, 2010, under Nutrition

I am reading a very interesting book “Born To Run” by Christopher McDougall, about a Hidden Tribe of Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen.

My interest was perked when I heard about the book and the perfect food that the Tarahumara tribe ate. Training for a half marathon, I wanted any help I could find. “Chia Seeds”, nature’s perfect food provide ample calcium and protein, contain fatty acids, omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid, soluble fibre, protective antioxidants vitamins and minerals. Mix 2 to 4 tables with 16 ounces of water and walla energy and yes I mean energy that lasts, not just a quick sugar high. The seeds help you stay hydrated longer, and retain electrolytes in your body.

Give it a try and let me know how you feel. I drink this each morning before my workouts.

Here is my health tip for the day. Do you have one for me?
