Chia Seeds are added as they are rich in fiber, heart-healthy omega-3 fats, protein and vitamins including manganese, phosphorus, copper, selenium, iron, magnesium and calcium.

1/2 cup over our favorite yogurt or just with some Almond Milk is a family favorite and a highly satisfying start to the day. It’s great for a quick breakfast as you’re headed out the door too!
