Chia Seeds

What are chia seeds?

Chia seeds are the edible seeds of a flowering plant in the mint family.

Are chia seeds healthy?

Chia seeds contain all nine essential amino acids. They are also high in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and antioxidants!

How do I use chia seeds?

Chia seeds can be soaked in water to form a gel-like substance called mucilage. I like to add them to chia jam, overnight oats or chia pudding.
