Chia seeds are small but mighty and are packed with so many wonderful nutrients in only a couple of tablespoons! There are so many ways to prepare and eat chia seeds, the most common being in smoothies, yogurts, or oatmeal. However, there are even more ways to incorporate this little seed into your plant-based diet.

In a clip by @sproutwiz on TikTok, he speaks about the power of the chia. Chia seeds can grow up to 20 times their size. If you soak chia seeds and put them on a chia pad, an unglazed clay pot, or a saucer, in just a week, these tiny seeds will grow to be 20 times their size. The seeds will grow soluble and insoluble fiber, omega-3s, and chlorophyll. Plus, you can eat the whole thing, stem and all!
