chia seeds

Chia seeds are a great source of dietary fibre, which helps with satiety, blood sugar balance, lowering cholesterol, and regulating your digestion. Just 2 tablespoons of chia seeds provide 10 grams of fibre – 40% of your daily needs!

These little seeds are also an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which play a role in heart health, brain health, and reducing inflammation throughout the body.

In addition, chia seeds are a source of plant-based protein and essential minerals like magnesium, calcium, and iron.

Some of my favourite ways to enjoy chia seeds are in smoothies, oatmeals, chia puddings, and chia jams!
