I've known for a long time that chia seeds are good for you, but I never realized how good for you. These powerful little seeds are nature's wonders , and can really be a very easy addition to your diet.

I was visiting The Wellness Warrior where I read a post called 13 Awesome reasons to eat Chia seeds.
Chia seeds are true health givers, high in fiber, nutrients, antioxidants (beats out the blueberry)and Omega 3's ( 8 times as much Omega 3 as in salmon). In addition, Chia seeds have a positive impact on helping maintain balanced blood sugar levels .
I especially think that reasons # 3, # 7 and # 12 could help everyone! Chia seeds are tasteless, so they are especially easy to add to foods , especially to boost the nutritional content for kids who tend to eat a lot of fast food !!
Do you ever get those little white bumpy pimples on the back of the arms or legs, the omega 3 in chia might help!
