Organic Chia Seeds - 1 lb bag
Considered a superfood, Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber and a rich plant source of omega-3 fatty acids delivering the maximum amount of nutrients with minimum calories. One ounce (about 2 tablespoons) contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, and 11 grams of fiber plus vitamins and minerals including iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc.
Due to their very mild flavor, antioxidant rich chia seeds are easy to incorporate into your diet; sprinkle raw chia seeds on cereal, salads, yogurt and vegetables. When soaked in water, chia seeds become gelatinous making them an nutricious thickener for sauces or an egg replacement to muffins and cakes. Also try making baked goods by grinding raw chia seeds and mixing them with flour, or try sprouting the seeds and adding them to bread dough, sandwiches and other dishes.
