Chia Seeds are an Easy Way to add more Omega 3 to your Diet

The wild chia plant is native to Central and Southern Mexico and Guatemala.  Native tribes from these regions used chia seeds soaked in water for sustained energy and hydration on long journeys.

Chia seeds are a nutrient dense superfood with few calories.  They are high in protein, antioxidants, calcium, and omega 3 fatty acids.

Chia seeds are small but when soaked in water they swell up 10 times their normal size to create a seedy nutritious gel that can be used for smoothies or other recipes.
