chiaHey there! its been a few days since my last post, but I’m back with a new super food for all my blog readers. Do you remember Chia pet? You know, sprinkle some water on a sheep statue and watch it grow overnight into a little green furry plant. Well I found out that those little seeds are more magical then just quick plant growth.

Chia has been in use for at least 3,000 years. Located in central America it was a favorite of the Aztec warriors, who would consume the seeds right before battle or a long run for its endurance capabilities. Chia is the richest and only unprocessed whole food source of Omega 3. I also found out that it is a complete protein with a soluble fiber that forms a gel that slows sugar absorption in your blood stream. Chia aids in digesting by removing toxin and eliminating waste.
