chia seeds

Chia seeds are a nutrient-packed food to include in your diet. They’re one of the best plant-based food sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and rich in dietary fiber. They’re also a good source of plant-based protein. The combination of healthy fats, fiber, and protein slows digestion, so chia seeds are filling and satiating.

 

Chia seeds also provide several micronutrients:

  • Calcium
  • Iron
  • Copper
  • Magnesium
  • Selenium
  • Thiamin
  • Niacin
  • and more!

I love adding chia seeds to all sorts of recipes, including overnight oats, smoothies, and energy balls. Chia seeds also make delicious chia jam with your favorite fruit.
