This summer I fell in love with these little seeds, when soaked in liquids the texture is very interesting, they taste good, and more importantly, these seeds are really good for your health!!

“Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, antioxidants, and protein. These little seeds have the highest-known percentage of omega-3 among plants. Chia seeds are an excellent source of calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, zinc, and copper. They have six times more calcium, eleven times more phosphorus, and five times more potassium than milk. Chia is so enriched with antioxidants they can be stored unrefrigerated with no concern of the oils going rancid. The most important antioxidants in chia are chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, myricetin, quercetin and kaempferol flavonols. These antioxidants are more effective than both vitamin C and E in their protective qualities. A serving of chia seeds is three tablespoons or a little over an ounce and provides 140 calories, 10g of fat, 14 g of carbohydrates, 12g of fiber and 5g of protein.”*
