The seeds are not just a healthy part of the chia plant. You can actually let chia seeds sprout, and eat these as a salad.
To do this, just place a layer of chia seeds in a clean container, spray them with water, and cover them with clear plastic wrap. Leave your batch in a sunny area, and wait for it to sprout.
Once the sprouts appear, usually in about 5-7 days, you can add them to your salads and sandwiches for a tasty treat!
Bake with chia seeds
Chia seeds are also great when mixed with bread. If you like baking your own bread, you can mix some chia seeds into the dough to give your bread an instant boost in nutrition.
This makes for a great alternative to white bread since you know exactly what is in your food, and it is free from any preservatives or additives.
Though small, chia seeds are packed with nutrition and can greatly improve your diet. Just a sprinkle immediately elevates your dishes and drinks into healthier ones.
