Chia seeds are good for you because they are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which help to raise the “good” cholesterol, known as HDL 3’s. Chia seeds are also rich in antioxidants, provide anti-inflammatory protection and help to promote regular bowel function.
Chia seeds retain moisture so they can be used in recipes to create a thick texture and provide a sense of satiety for many hours. The seeds can be added whole or ground to smoothies and juices, mixed into yogurt or oatmeal, or sprinkled on top of a salad or vegetables. It turns out the seeds are a rich source of nutrients including fiber, minerals, iron, and calcium.
Top with fresh nuts and seeds for added protein for more crunch.
