WHAT THE HECK IS A CHIA?
Great question! The mighty chia seed is an edible seed rich in fiber, protein, vitamins A, B, E, and D, and minerals including sulphur, iron, iodine, magnesium, manganese, niacin, and thiamine. It is also the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids. Chia seeds are a complete protein, containing all nine essential amino acids that cannot be made by the body. When soaked in liquids like soy or coconut milk the chia seed absorbs up to 12 times it’s weight. And, of course, when spread across a terra-cotta head and watered - you have a chia pet!
