A Tiny Little Seed Packs a Big Punch

chiaChia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiberantioxidants, and calcium. Chia seeds are an unprocessed, whole-grain food that can be absorbed by the body as seeds. One ounce contains 139 calories, 4 grams of protein, 9 grams fat, 12 grams carbohydrates and 11 grams of fiber, plus vitamins and minerals. Chia seeds are 40% fiber, by weight making them one of the best sources of fiber out there! And gram for gram, they contain more Omega-3s than salmon.

Some people believe that chia seeds can help you lose weight because they expand in your belly which makes you feel full helping you to eat less. But one study indicates otherwise. While evidence is limited, it’s worth a try! Sprinkle them on your cereal or yogurt to add an extra punch of nutrition to your breakfast.
