So what is this miraculous little seed and how can you eat it? Great question, well this tiny little South American seed just keeps on giving, diverse in both nutrients and in recipes! In fact, the Mayan word for ‘chia’ is strength which is probably why it has been consumed by the Aztecs and Mayans for centuries.

Here are a few reasons to love CHIA

  • Gentle fibre for the bowels
  • High in anti-oxidants
  • Super low in calories
  • Plant based protein for building and repair
  • Contain minerals such as calcium for bones, magnesium for muscles,
  • Zinc for digestive and immune support and several B vitamins that are important for energy and a variety of metabolic processes
  • Essential fats (omega-3) for brain function, joint health and reducing inflammation
  • PLUS it is super easy to prepare and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch and dinner!

Now that’s something to CHIA about!!
