Chia Seeds: After reading benefits of chia seeds, you won’t replace it with peanut butter or almond butter. The thing I like most about chia seeds is that almost all the carbohydrates in it are fiber. Other than fiber they have high-quality protein, Omega-3 fatty acids, and various micronutrients.
They are great antioxidants, help you lose weight; strengthen bones with magnesium and phosphorus.
They are also helpful in diabetes as chia seeds can significantly lower blood pressure and a marker for inflammation.

Spinach: is loaded with vitamin C, vitamin K, folic acid, iron, carotenoids and calcium. It also contains few other nutrients in small amounts such as potassium, magnesium, and vitamins B6, B9, and E.
It is a great antioxidant and reduces the risk of cancer by preventing the growth of cancer cells.
It contains lutein and zeaxanthin which improves eye-sight.
