About Chia Seeds
Chia seeds come from a plant that grows in the desert called Salvia hispanica and is apart of the same family as the mint plant. Chia Seeds give an incredible fix of minerals, fiber, and antioxidants in just one serving, all while holding back on the calories. You can transform chia seed into a pudding and either mix them into oatmeal or use them as a topping on some delicious yogurt. Chia Seeds have a mild, nutty flavor that makes them easy to add to food and beverages such as cereals, sauces, or vegetables. They are packed with protein and complement other favors in any dish as well. Chia Seeds uniquely can be put into multiple different dishes and use them in unique ways.
Chia seeds are a very concentrated seed that contains healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants, and calcium.
