Chia seeds can be eaten in various ways. They can be sprinkled on top of yogurt, oatmeal, or smoothies, added to baked goods like muffins or bread, or used as an egg substitute in vegan recipes by mixing them with water. They can also be sprinkled on salads like I’ve done in this recipe.
Chia seeds are a nutrient-dense food that is rich in fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and antioxidants. They have been associated with improved digestion, heart health, weight management, and blood sugar control.
Chia seeds are often included in weight loss diets due to their high fiber and protein content, which can help you feel full and satisfied.
Chia seeds should be stored in a cool, dry place, preferably in an airtight container. They have a long shelf life and can be stored for several years without losing their nutritional value.
Hemp seeds are highly nutritious. They are a great source of plant-based protein, healthy fats (including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids), fiber, and various vitamins and minerals. They have been associated with improved heart health, reduced inflammation, enhanced digestion, and may even support healthy skin and hair.
Hemp seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and can be added to a variety of dishes. You can sprinkle them on salads, yogurt, or oatmeal, blend them into smoothies, use them as a topping for roasted vegetables, or even incorporate them into baking recipes like muffins or energy bars. I sprinkle them on everything for that extra nutritional boost. It’s like taking vitamins for me…just a good thing.

Mexican Salad

Everyone loves this salad which has black beans, pineapples, different colored peppers, corn, onion and a whole lot of great flavor. Tossed in an olive oil and lime juice dressing, this is a great quick lunch or side dish.
