Omega 3 fatty acids are beneficial and crucial to a balanced diet for women. While the go-to for omega 3 fatty acids may be wild fish, there are many plant-based options for getting your omega 3 fatty acids. Chia seeds have a healthy amount of these fatty acids and also provide fiber and protein. One easy way to get chia seeds into your diet is to use this recipe as a replacement for eggs in any baking recipe!
1 tablespoon organic chia seeds
3 tablespoons water
1. Mix together the chia seeds and the water.
2. Let sit for about 10-15 minutes, until the chia seed and water mixture has a gelatinous texture that is similar to an egg white.
3. Use this mixture to replace 1 egg in any recipes for baking.
