If you are watching calories, you may want to stick with a single serving. However, this great rendition of eggs Benedict is packed with omega 3s! This is another inventive way to include chia seeds in your diet daily. A study in type 2 diabetics showed that chia seeds can significantly lower blood pressure and a marker for inflammation. Chia is also great if you tend to be on the constipated side.

If you aren't keen on making Hollandaise sauce, I found an excellent, keto-friendly, store-bought sauce at Trader Joe's. It's located in the refrigerated section. It's absolutely one of my favorite condiments because you can warm it for Hollandaise or use it cold for a spread. MMMMMmmm.
