Chia seeds are a great source of omega 3 to easily add to your diet.

A few ways to use them: sprinkle them on your salad – add them to your oatmeal or other cereal – add them to smoothies or shakes – stir them in to yogurt. My favorite way is on my toast; I put almond butter and a little jam on my toast and them liberally top with chia seeds.
Make sure you drink plenty of water when you eat chia seeds. They are hydrophilic; they absorb water (and lots of it) – up to 30 times their weight in water. Some people like to stir chia seeds into water and make a chia “gel” that they add to juices and smoothies.
They can be purchased rather inexpensively from a number of places. I purchase mine on Amazon using the subscribe and save method to get a good deal on a 3 lb. package – 3 lb.s of chia seed is A LOT!
