If you've only heard of chia seeds from those chia pets that are sold on late-night TV, you're in for a surprise when you learn that these small, crunchy, gluten-free seeds are a rich source of protein, beneficial antioxidants, essential omega-3 fatty acids and fiber.
The people of the ancient Aztec and Mayan empires revered chia seeds as vital nourishment. These mighty, gluten-free seeds, packed with omega-3, protein, rare antioxidants and fiber, are making a strong comeback in the 21st century. Enjoy them in yogurt, oatmeal, baked goods or smoothies.
