The first time I tried chia seeds, I declared for all who could listen, “Add these to everything you love!” If you like bubble tea, tapioca pudding or even rice pudding, chia seeds are a way to get that same texture but fill your meal or snack with a jolt of antioxidants, omega 3s, fiber and general happiness.
4. Kale Salad
Mix two of the latest health food crazes for a health and delicious meal. Just sprinkle some chia seeds of a kale salad of your choice. I like to top my kale with dried cranberries, toasted almond slivers, shredded carrots and some raspberry vinaigrette.
6. BONUS: Are you a texture person?
If weird, slimy things in your food freak you out, use chia seeds in your baking. They are great poppy seed and egg replacements. You can even bake them in cinnamon rolls!
But if texture doesn’t bother you, follow my advice and literally put chia seeds on/in everything you love!
