You may recognize the name from the funny ceramic statue planters that were once the craze. These tiny seeds are no laughing matter – in fact they are a natural appetite suppressants and just 1 ounce delivers an impressive 10 grams of fiber and 5 grams of protein. Research found they can help you eat less by naturally regulating blood sugar, which helps put the breaks on hunger. We love the way they swell up in liquid for a bubble effect.
Add them to your water bottle, morning OJ, afternoon iced tea, or sprinkle them on salads, yogurt, and cereal.
