Chia seeds are a nutritional booster growing in popularity among vegans and non-vegans alike. They are very tiny seeds, available in a variety of colors. Nutritionally, chia seeds are a vegan superfood – packed with protein. They also contain omega-3, fiber and other vitamins and minerals, like B vitamins.
Chia seeds are flavorless and, when soaked, take on a gooey texture, useful for making a pudding or overnight oats. They are often sprinkled raw onto oatmeal, blended in smoothies and baked into muffins.
