WHAT WE'RE COOKING THIS WEEK: Chia seeds

If you haven't jumped on 2013's chia band wagon yet, you're missing out. This powerful seed, with an endless roster of health benefits, can be added to everything from homemade smoothies to granola bars.

Chia seeds are a great source of healthy omega-3 fats and fibre, and can boost energy levels and help digestion. And because they don't have a particular taste, you can add them to your cereals or blend them with your meals — you won't even taste the difference.

In case you missed it, last week we packed seaweed.
