They are tiny, but pack a nutritional punch.
Chia and Flax seeds can be added to foods ranging from baked goods to salads, to even yogurt.

Chia seeds, along with flax seed are a good source of vegetarian protein, but, you don’t have to be a vegetarian or vegan to enjoy them.
Flax seed may even reduce the risk of certain cancers, while Chia contains more fiber, protein and Omega-three fatty acids.
