Chia Seeds are native to Central and Southern Mexico and Guatemala. They are considered a superfood because they are exceptionally high in antioxidants, fiber, protein, and omega-3s.
According to the Sun & Seed Chai seed company, chia seeds have been a staple of Aztec and Mayan diet since pre-Columbian times. Just 2 tablespoons could sustain an Aztec warrior for 24 hours.
They can be used in baking, sprinkled over salads or cereals, or added to smoothies. Recommended daily intake is 15 grams. We suggest soaking them in a glass with Almond Breeze almond milk or Koko coconut milk for about 15 minutes. Add a tsp of Biona coconut sugar, give it a stir and top with frozen fruit for a delicious and nutritious pudding.
