The Chia seed is one of the richest plant sources of omega-3 fatty acids, an anti-inflammatory agent that is good for healthy skin and involved in the cholesterol metabolism function. It is an excellent source of natural antioxidants, protein, calcium, phosphorus, manganese, potassium, zinc, copper, and iron. In fact, Chia contains six times more iron than spinach. Also, it’s gluten free.

Chia seeds have been known to:

  • increase energy and strength
  • heighten endurance
  • level blood sugar
  • promote intestinal regularity

These seeds can be ground and mixed with flour to make breads, but it is not necessary to grind Chia seed as they can be taken whole. They can be added to foods like cereals, juices, broths, salads, and yogurt. Also, Chia seeds will last for years without refrigeration.

  1. I like to use puréed fruit with chia seeds sweetened with stevia to make a refrigerator fruit spread! The whole family enjoys it. :)
