💚Healthy Tips💚 

Despite their small size, chia seeds are full of important nutrients.  

Chia seeds are rich in antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and magnesium. All of these may help reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and diabetes complications. 

One ounce (28.35 g) of dried chia seeds provides almost 10g of fiber. An adult should consume between 22.4 and 33.6g of fiber each day, depending on their age and sex.

Chia seeds are relatively easy to find in any major grocery store.  

Raw, they can be sprinkled on cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, or smoothies. They can also be eaten cooked, added to baked goods like bread and muffins.  

I haven't tried, but in vegan baking, they can replace eggs. To use them as an egg substitute in baking, try mixing 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water, then let them sit for a few minutes. A gel will form that can be used instead of eggs in baking. 

Excellent reasons for incorporating Chia Seeds into your diet!😋
