[chia, stevia & pink salt]

When I attended the raw food workshop more than 3 weeks ago, I was made aware of the benefits of eating raw. And during the cooking demo, we were introduced to some of the ingredients that are not what we usually add to our food, but are actually better if we only know that they pack more nutrients & do no harm to our bodies.. Because of this new awareness of their health benefits, I decided to buy these 3 basic ingredients from the raw food grocery,  the LEAF KITCHEN (DAHON KUSINA). 

Food rich in omega 3 fatty acids since it yields 25-30%  extractable oil, including α-linolenic acid (ALA). Chia seeds are typically small ovals with a diameter of about 1 mm (0.039 in). They are mottle-colored with brown, gray, black and white. The seeds may be eaten raw as a whole seed, soaked in water or juice (gelatinous in texture) & used in porridges, gruels & puddings. They are also ground up & used in baked goodies such as breads, cakes & biscuits. Dried chia seeds provide protein, fats & fiber. - source

It is a sweetener & sugar substitute. It is a genus of about 240 species of herbs and shrubs in the sunflower family (Asteraceae), native to subtropical  and tropical regions from western North America to South America. The species Stevia rebaudiana, commonly known as sweetleafsweet leafsugarleaf, or simply stevia, is widely grown for its sweet leaves. It has a negligible effect on blood glucose so it is attractive as a natural sweetener to people on carbohydrate-controlled diets. - source

Contains the full spectrum of 84 minerals & trace elements. It is an unrefined, unprocessed "raw" salt that's hand-mined from abundant salt caves that were formed 250 million years ago as ocean salt settled in certain geologic pockets around the earth. - source
