4. Chia seeds
Chia seeds are another one of nature’s great omega-3 powerhouses. These reduce the proliferation of unhealthy LDL cholesterol and help avoid plaque buildup. A single spoonful of chia seeds gives you a bucketload of anti-inflammatory goodness. Plus, it only packs a 60 calorie punch. Chia seeds make a great addition to smoothies and yogurts. They can even be used in place of eggs as a binding agent for baking.
