Chia is my fav!!
In 3 TBSP of chia you get:
14 grams of fiber
7 grams of (complete) protein
and MORE omega-3 fatty acids per serving than salmon!

The omega-3s in chia seeds lessen your risk of heart disease and clogged arteries. When chia seeds are exposed to liquids, such as water or milk, they increase as much as 12 times their initial weight and size. The size increase helps satisfy your appetite.
A vegan, complete source of protein, with omega 3's and 6's and 14 grams of fiber/serving makes it one of the best superfoods around!
