Chia Seeds may be small, but they’re big on goodness! Packed with highly nutritious essentials including protein, fibre and omega fats.
Their unusual mixture of colours make them an attractive addition to many recipes from seeded breads to cakes or as an extra omega boost at breakfast time, added to your favourite cereal. As they’re neutral in taste kids won’t mind them either, mixed into yoghurts or fruit smoothies.
Historically, the chia seed was a staple part of the diet in South America and now it has become hailed as a "superfood" in Europe due to its unique nutrition profile.
Soak one tablespoon of chia seeds to three tablespoons of water, leave for up to an hour to form a gel like consistency. Use as a binding ingredient to replace eggs. Grinding chia seeds will release a greater level of nutritional benefits.

Because Chia seeds swell in liquid I mix a dessertspoonful into a glass of tomato juice or into scrambled egg mixture for breakfast. They keep me feeling fuller for longer so no need to snack between meals. There is hardly any flavour and they are easy to swallow in a smoothie or other drink. They help me in weight-loss.
