The Magic of Chia
Chia seeds are small but seriously mighty. So how exactly does so much joy come from such a tiny seed?
An Ancient Superfood
Chia is an ancient grain that translates as “strength” in the Mayan language. Chia was eaten by Mayan and Aztec warriors to give them strength for up to 24 hours. It’s also favored by the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico, who credit chia as the force behind their extraordinary long-distance stamina!
But it was with the help of modern science that we can confirm chia as one of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet. Each tiny seed is packed with immunity-boosting Omega-3s, complete protein, dietary fiber, antioxidants and minerals – the list goes on! It’s hard to believe that so much goodness can fit into something so small.
A Versatile Ingredient
Chia seeds are easily digestible, neutral-tasting and aesthetically pleasing. This makes them an incredibly versatile ingredient you’ll love experimenting with. Chia makes a wonderful, nutrient-rich addition to salads, smoothies, baked goods and so many more delicious recipes!
Adding chia to your daily diet helps provide the vitality, energy, and strength you need to fulfill your soul’s purpose.
A Sustainable Crop
Organic Chia is one of the world’s most sustainable crops. Salvia hispanica, to give its technical name, is native to central and southern Mexico and Guatemala and requires little to no irrigation, thriving solely on rainwater in many climates. It’s hardy too and can be grown without harmful pesticides or chemicals.
