Did you also know that chia seeds are known for their health benefits? They’re packed with all the good stuff like vitamins, fiber, and protein to keep you full and satisfied all morning. And on top of that, the antioxidants, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids in chia seeds support heart health and blood sugar regulation.

What is Monk Fruit Sweetener?

Monk fruit sweetener is a zero-calorie sweetener that has become more popular in recent years as an alternative to higher-calorie options. Monk fruit is a small fruit that grows in southeast Asia, but the fresh fruit doesn’t store well. Thankfully, the fruit’s extract is shelf-stable and has become a pantry staple in many homes. You can find it in most groceries stores or even on Amazon.
