You have likely heard about the health benefits of chia seed - this amazing ancient superfood.
Originally grown in Mexico, chia means “strength” in the Mayan language. In fact, those small seeds were referred as the “runners food”. Packed with energy-boosting power, the warriors would use chia as a fuel while running long distances and participating in battles. Chia seeds helped them stay hydrated and full of energy.
In the past few years, chia has become one of the most popular superfoods in the health community. Rich in omega 3-fats, fiber, high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals, this magical superfood is a versatile ingredient to smoothies, salads, healthy desserts and snacks. And yummy chia pudding recipes of course!
 They really are a sunny explosion of nutrition in a tiny bright package!
