Chia seeds may not increase the flavor of your dish, but they add tons of nutrition and help as a binder. These little seeds are an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acid ALA which supports heart health. In addition, 2 tablespoons will add 12 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein to your dish. And, don’t forget the manganese and phosphorus they contain which are essential for bone health.
