“Chia” means “strength” in Mayan. These seeds of the desert plant Salvia hispanica date back to ancient Mexican culture. Today they’re touted as one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. Just one ounce, or two tablespoons, of chia can provide 1/3 of your daily recommended fiber. They’re also packed with protein, omega-3’s and antioxidants. Historically they’ve been used in long distance running in the Mexican culture since they’re hydrophilic, or able to retain water, thus preventing dehydration. As a superfood today they’re used in smoothies, baked goods, soaked in milk for pudding and sprinkled on various breakfasts. Their long shelf life and lack of strong taste makes them incredibly simple to add to your diet while their tiny size and ample nutrition make them a no-brainer to keep on hand.
