We’ve teamed up this month with our pals at Fresh&Naked (the salad people!) to bring you a healthy, nutrition packed combo of chia seeds and baby spinach.
From 17 July, you’ll get a free Chia Shots with each bag of Fresh&Naked Super Nutritious Baby Spinach purchased at Tesco – but only while stocks last!
While spinach might not get as much press as other more health-trending greens (we’re looking at you, kale!) this pop-eye favourite is a real heavy-hitter in the health department.
Spinach is rich in iron, and is also an outstanding source of vitamin A, C, K, folic acid, manganese, magnesium, and vitamin B2. It provides powerful anti-inflammatory and anti-cancerous properties from its high levels of phytonutrients, which is also important for healthy eye-sight. Add this to the numerous macro and micronutrients in chia seeds, and you’ve got a nutritional match made in heaven!!
To celebrate our collaboration with Fresh&Naked, we’ve created this delicious Spinach & Chia pesto recipe. Use it as a dip for carrot or celery sticks, spread on pizza bases or stir though cooked pasta. You can also use the spinach and chia together in a green smoothie, or add some fresh tomato, cucumber and a drizzle of olive oil for your perfect lunchtime salad mix.
