Chia caviar

From today I'm starting a new category, named FOOD. At least for now I will keep it simple, I will post simple recipes, easy to prepare and healthy. The idea of fashion blog will remain  the main idea of this blog  that newly created sections (FOOD and TRAVELING) will only bring some extra diversity. The variety is the spice of life!
I recently discovered the chia seeds so I decided that for the first post from FOOD category to be a simple and tasty recipe called chia caviar salad.
For preparing this salad I mixed 80 grams of chia seeds which 100 ml of water, over which I added 25 ml of olive oil, the juice of one lemon and half of chopped onion. If you have a small onion you can put it all. For a plus of flavor I added a bit of Himalayan salt. For some time already I'm using Himalayan salt because is rich in minerals and helps to eliminate the toxins from the body. I don't use it only in the kitchen I also use it in the bathroom having benefits for the skin also.
I suggest you to leave the salad to "rest" for about an hour so the flavors will mixed between them and it will be more delicious than if a serve it immediately (at least so it seemed to me). Also, depending on your taste you can also add or reduce the amount of lemon juice or the olive oil. I always have a tendency to reduce the quantity of oil and sugar in any recipe and not necessarily for a health reasons is more a taste matter.
Next, I will present some of the properties and benefits of the chia seeds found here:
  • 5 times more calcium than milk
  •  3 times more antioxidants than blueberries
  •  3 times more iron than spinach
  •  2 times more protein than any other grain or seeds
  •  2 times more potassium than bananas

  • helps quench cravings and hunger
  • protects from harmful environmental factors
  • are a natural source of energy
  • ensure a wasp waist
  • helps build muscle mass
  • relieves joint pain
  • antioxidant effects

Hug you all with love!

De astazi incep o noua categorie si anume cea de FOOD. Cel putin deocamdata ma voi axa pe retete simple, usor de preparat si sanatoase. Ideea de fashion blog va ramane ideea de baza urmand ca sectiunile noi create (FOOD si TRAVELING) sa aduca doar un plus de diversitate. Pe principiul varietatea este condimentul vietii!
De curand am descoperit semintele de chia asa incat m-am decis ca prima postare de la categoria FOOD sa fie o reteta simpla si gustoasa de salata de icre din chia.
La prepararea acestei salate eu am pus 80 gr seminte de chia, pe care le-am incorporat intr-o 100 ml de apa, peste care am adaugat 25 ml ulei de masline, zeama de la o lamaie si o jumatate de ceapa tocata marunt. Daca ceapa nu este mare puteti pune o ceapa intreaga. Pentru un plus de gust am adaugat si putina sare de Himalaya. De ceva vreme folosesc sarea de Himalaya pentru ca este bogata in minerale si ajuta la eliminarea toxinelor din organism. Nu o folosesc doar la mancare ci si la baie avand proprietati si pentru piele.  Eu am optat pentru varianta granulata pe care o pisez intr-un mojar.
Eu va propun sa lasati salata sa se "odihneasca" aproximativ o ora pentru a se intrepatrunde aromele astfel va fi mult mai delicioasa decat daca o serviti imediat (cel putin mie asa mi s-a parut). Deasemenea, in functie de gustul vostru mai puteti adauga sau reduce cantitatea de zeama de lamaie respectiv ulei. Eu mereu am tendinta de a reduce cantitatgea de ulei si zahar din orice reteta si nu neaparat din considerente de sanatate cat mai curand din considerente de gust.
In continuare va voi prezenta cateva din proprietatile si beneficiile semintelor de chia preluate de aici:

  • de 5 ori mai mult calciu decat laptele
  • de 3 ori mai multi antioxidanti decat afinele
  • de 3 ori mai mult fier decat spanacul
  • de 2 ori mai multe proteine decat orice alte boabe sau seminte
  • de 2 ori mai mult potasiu decat bananele


  • ajuta la potolirea poftelor si a foamei
  • protejeaza de factorii nocivi din mediul inconjurator
  • sunt o sursa naturala de energie
  • asigura o talie de viespe
  • ajuta la formarea masei musculare
  • amelioreaza durerile articulare
  • au efecte antioxidant

Va imbratisez cu drag!
