    Chia seeds are a nutritional bonanza in a tiny package. Each tablespoon contains 65 calories, 2.5 grams protein, 5 grams of fiber and 1755 milligrams of omega-3 oils, plus they are chock full of B vitamins and alkalizing minerals such as calcium, phosphorous and manganese. Gluten-free can be delicious, vegan and healthy.

      #ChiaSeeds Known as one of the richest sources of omega 3 fatty acids – essential to the diet. Chia seeds punch above their weight, with just 1 tablespoon producing 3 grams of fibre – the dose of many fibre supplements. And because chia seeds absorb several times their weight in water, it provides a feeling of fullness by up to 63%. Pour some into your bottled water as you head out for the day, and drink back the chia love! Go forth and sprinkle, fellow Beyondites!
