We are CRAZY for CHIA! Though these seeds are tiny, one tablespoon of chia seeds pack a HUGE nutritional punch with just 70 calories, 2 grams of protein, 5 grams of belly-filling fiber, and a healthy dose of anti-inflammatory Omega-3 fats. These low maintenance seeds are very versatile in recipes, and unlike other seeds, chia seeds are virtually flavorless. Toss them in your morning smoothie, add them to your favorite granola recipe, or even use them for a sweet and satisfying snack! Our favorite way to enjoy chia seeds is chia pudding. Check out some of our super simple flavor creations:
