Chia Seeds Vs Flax Seeds: Which Is Healthier?

Basic Green Thickie Recipe


Chia Seeds Vs Flax Seeds:  Which Is Healthier?Both chia seeds and flax seeds top the list of superfoods. They are both easy to add to your salads or smoothies for a nutritional punch.  

I adore both of them and add them to my smoothies, salads, salad dressings, make puddings out of them – you name it!

But is one better than the other? Let’s compare.

Both have more antioxidants than blueberries!

Depending on what source you check out, either could win out.

If you had to choose based on the above comparison, it looks like chia seeds win out, but not by a landslide.

Use both.

Each have their own nutritional benefits and are an easy addition to your healthy diet where variety is key.

Which is your favourite and what do you use them for?
