I love chia seeds and use them a lot in baking and my morning oatmeal!  Chia seeds are mini powerhouses packing more calcium than milk, more antioxidants than blueberries and more Omega-3 than Salmon.

Their texture can take a little getting used to, but they are so versatile and are a great protein-packed addition to many recipes because of their ability to thicken and gel.

You could use any kind of resealable container to store whatever is not eaten right away.  I love these little Weck jars that I purchased on Amazon.  When serving, top with your favorite fruit or nuts.  The possibilities are endless!
