If you haven’t tried chia seeds, you’re missing out on a host of health benefits. Chia seeds are tiny seeds (often black) that originated in Central America and are a member of the mint family. Nutrition-wise, chia seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and fiber, two nutrients that can promote heart health. But that’s not all: chia seeds also contain protein, iron, calcium, magnesium, and zinc, making them a staple of a plant-based diet. An added benefit of eating chia seeds: They may help with weight loss and blood sugar management, too. How? These little seeds absorb water and become gelatinous, helping you to feel full, so you eat less.
