Chia Seeds

These tiny little seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and are bountiful in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, protein, fiber, antioxidants and calcium. Because they absorb up to 12 times their own weight in liquid, chia seeds can help you feel fuller longer, aiding in weight loss. Toss 1-2 teaspoons into your morning smoothie to reap the benefits.
