Small and mighty
These small seeds have been generating quite a bit of buzz. How could something so tiny be so good for you? An ancient food, chia seeds were a staple in the diets of the Aztecs and Mayans. They help keep you feeling full, are a great source of fiber, antioxidants and protein, and they are one of the richest plant-based sources of omega-3 fatty acids.
Another nice thing about chia seeds is that they can easily be added to baked goods, smoothies, yogurt, salads and cereal. They plump up and thicken any liquid that you add them to. A little goes a long way, and many experts say that adults can consume 2 tablespoons of chia seeds per day, but it's unnecessary to consume more than 3 tablespoons.
