Such tiny little seeds! These are chia seeds. While it is very popular to make a type of overnight pudding with them, you can also eat them raw like this. They add a nice little pop and crunch, just like a poppy seed or a sesame seed might.
Chia seeds contain a tremendous amount of nutrients, but with very few calories. That's why they've recently been recognized as a superfood. Chia seeds can absorb 10 times their weight in water though… so unless you want to feel super full later in the day, don't eat too many!
