Chia seeds would have to be one of my favourite foods. I have diverticulosis..(that’s where you have little pockets in your gut that can trap seeds etc yucky..AND painful)..so chia wasn’t something I could eat in, say a bread with chia seeds in it.

For women, the RDI of omega-3s is 1.1 grams (1,100 mg) a day, so if you’re looking for a new food source that’s vegan, gluten-free, and easy to digest, then these babies are your new bestie.

About two tablespoons contains:

137 calories,one gram of saturated fat, 11 grams of fibre, 4 grams of protein, 177 milligrams of calcium, and 4.9 grams of omega-3 fatty acids.

Oh. Em. Gee
