…These are just a few of the ways chia seeds are used in my house. Hungry?

It’s a fun time to be a healthy foodie — there are so many creative recipes to keep our taste buds and waistlines happy!

But external satisfaction is not all this ancient little seed can offer. The chia seed, Mayan for “strength,” boasts big health benefits including:


  • Reduced inflammation, improved heart health, decreased risk of diabetes and high blood pressure due to the high fiber, protein, and Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Healthy bones, thanks to rich calcium content. Chia seeds are also a great source for other vital micronutrients such as magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, potassium, and some B vitamins.
  • High antioxidants that fight the production of free radicals, which can damage molecules in cells and contribute to aging and diseases like cancer.
  • Lowered LDL cholesterol and triglycerides, increased HDL cholesterol and reduced inflammation.

Overeat these foods and LOSE more weight

Chia seeds are 40% fiber by weight making them a really smart way to find physical satisfaction at mealtime without excess calories. And chia seeds are incredibly easy to incorporate into your diet.

The seeds themselves taste fairly bland, making them easy to incorporate in a diverse range of recipes.

Other perks of the chia seed:

  • They don’t need to be ground like flax seeds = easy prep! (However, I like them ground.)
  • They can be eaten raw, soaked in juice, added to hot cereals, puddings, shakes, and baked goods.
  • They can be sprinkled on top of cereal, yogurt, vegetables, or rice dishes.
  • They are great thickeners for sauces, dips, spreads, and shakes.
  • They can be used as egg substitutes in recipes — simply mix with water to create a gel.


Adding chia seeds to recipes will dramatically boost the nutritional value.
