11 Fun and Easy Ways to Add Chia Seeds Into Your Life

Ch…Ch…Ch…Chia! Remember the pottery that grows chia plants? Well, it turns out, chia seeds have grown into quite a sensation and has been touted as a “superfood.” These seeds are packed with protein, fiber, and antioxidants. It is best known for having a chock full of omega-3 fatty acids. And “the anecdotal evidence of chia’s positive health effects include boosting energy, stabilizing blood sugar, aiding digestion, and lowering cholesterol.”

Buy whole or ground chia seeds and add them to your morning or pre/post-workout smoothies, on top of cereal and oatmeal, or even hide them into desserts like this Chia Caramel Pecan Pie or enjoy a relaxing Chia Margarita after a long day’s work.

I go on Chia kicks. Every now and again I'll consume it daily for a while then stop.
