Chia seeds are an excellent source of fat and fibre. Especially alpha-linolenic fatty acid – one of those omega three fats everyone’s so keen on. They’re also relatively high in protein compared to other seeds and nuts. And they’re chock full of calcium, iron, potassium, and antioxidants aplenty.
I like adding them to hot cereal or salads. Chia seeds soak up liquid like you wouldn’t believe! They quickly form a gelatinous layer around each seed once exposed to liquid and will quickly thicken up any cereal or salad dressing. And unlike flax seeds you don’t need to grind them first to ensure they don’t pass through undigested.
The reason I was excited to find these at Costco is because they’re so cheap there. At eight dollars for two pounds it’s ridiculously cheap compared to places like Whole Foods. Try mixing them in from time to time and I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
