Chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Two tablespoons of chia seeds contain about 140 calories, 4 grams of protein, 11 grams of fibre, 7 grams of unsaturated fat, 18% RDA for calcium, and trace minerals including zinc and copper. And Chia seeds are a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body.
Chia seeds are so common now that you can buy them at almost any grocery store. You do not need to make a special trip to a health-food store.

This week is all about flavor and a few recipes and sites to get you going.
For me, cooking starts with what's in my fridge. Often it's like a little game. Today, I had some broccoli, rib eye and avocado. If I wanted to add a small quantity of carbs I would use sprouted rice (cooks in 25min) or quinoa.
Tomorrow, I'll roast chicken breast, topped with salsa and cheddar with a vegetable fry on the side. I love taking zucchini, onion or leek, mushrooms, bell pepper, and asparagus or swiss chard/spinach sautéing it with a butter/olive oil combo then add spices to brighten up the flavor. Adding a healthy fat will really help you feel full sooner and hold you longer. Added bonus - fats taste great!
I have to admit, sometimes I like to use a spice blend. This is one of my favorites - absolutely delicious on vegetables, eggs, white meat or fish....
