Chia seeds are quite remarkable . They are a super food you should know about and begin to incorporate into your diet since they have so many life giving benefits. Chia seeds are the best plant source of Omega 3’s; even more than salmon and flax seeds.They are loaded with antioxidants equivalent to the amount in blueberries. For the winter season they are especially good since we don’t get fresh blueberries in the south this time of year.
