Chia seeds Benefits:
- Chia seeds are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, iron, and calcium. Omega-3 fatty acids help raise HDL cholesterol, the “good” cholesterol that protects against heart attack and stroke.
- A 28-gram, or 1-ounce, serving of chia seeds also contains 5.6 grams of protein.
How to use:
- Mixed with water, they can replace egg in vegan cooking.
- Chia seeds can be eaten cooked or raw, but they should be added to another food or soaked before eating.
