Did you know chia seeds are a superfood, loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids, protein, calcium, fiber, iron, and anti-oxidants? I am always surprised at how few people utilize this amazing ingredient in their diet! All their health benefits make chia seeds the perfect addition to the keto lifestyle. Oh, and did I mention they have ZERO net carbs?? You can find them at your local health food store and select grocery stores. Add them to your salad for some crunch, blend them into soup, protein smoothies, and berry jam as a thickener, or make this delicious pudding--perfect for breakfast, a snack, or dessert!
