Little chia seeds make for one delicious raspberry pudding that is guilt free! The seeds pack a lot of nutrition into a teeny tiny package. They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids. Another area where chia seeds shine is in their high amount of antioxidants. These antioxidants protect the sensitive fats in the seeds from going rancid. Although antioxidant supplements are not very effective, getting antioxidants from foods can have positive effects on health. Most importantly, antioxidants fight the production of free radicals, which can damage molecules in cells and contribute to aging and diseases like cancer.
