Trader Joe’s ORGANIC CHIA SEEDS


Trader Joe’s Organic Chia Seeds

If you aren’t eating chia seeds by now, you probably should be.

You’ve no doubt heard about what a superfood chia seeds are and all it’s health benefits. These tiny powerhouse seeds are packed with protein and Omega 3’s and other goodies. When soaked in liquid the seeds swell up into a gel. So they are great for adding to cereal, smoothies, yogurt or pancakes. They can be used as a thickener. The seeds are really tiny so be careful as if you spill some they have a tendency to go everywhere. Rather than pouring them out of the bag, I keep some in a jar so I can pour them or scoop out a huge tablespoon every day which I mix into oat milk and kefir. They take a little while to swell up and absorb liquid so I wait 10 minutes af so. A 12 oz bag of them now sells for $5.49. Trader Joe’s sells a number of superfood seed items, chia seeds, flax seeds, a mix of chia and flax, and hemp seeds. All of these tiny superfood seeds are good for you and things you can incorporate into your daily diet, especially I think at breakfast when you can eat a few tablespoons easily in cereal, yogurts, and smoothies.

Trader Joe’s carries a few superfood seeds: CHIA SEEDS, FLAX SEEDS, HEMP SEEDS. I saw a whole “smoothies section” featuring these seeds plus other products good to make your morning smoothie
