“Although chia seeds are tiny, they pack the most omega-3 fatty acids —which are proven to reduce risk factors for heart disease—and fiber compared to any other food by weight,” says Lisa Hayim, registered dietitian and founder of The WellNecessities.
“They’re also an easy alternative to carbs,” adds Rebecca Lewis, RD for HelloFresh. [In addition to all their nutrients], not to mention they are also an excellent source of vegetarian-based protein.” Add some crunch to Greek yogurt or oatmeal by sprinkling on chia seeds!
