Healthy Chia Seed Recipes

If you don’t know this about me, I LOVE chia seeds, particularly Salba Chia chia seeds! Chia seeds are a great, plant-based way to pack in protein, omega-3s and fiber, along with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants!

Today I took over Salba Chia’s Instagram feed (@Salbachia) and I posted chia recipes all day long. I thought I’d share the recipes here as a chia recipe roundup to make it easier for you to look back on them anytime you’d like to make them!
