Chia: Using the Ancient Superfood

Chia: Using the Ancient Superfood

 

Grown as a staple crop for centuries in North, Central, and South America, chia seeds were highly prized by Aztec warriors and athletes for the sustained energy they provided. A source of low-fat, plant-based protein, and both soluble and insoluble fiber, chia seeds also contain eight times the amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in salmon.

You'll find more than 25 recipes ranging from desserts, snacks, and beverages, to casseroles, soups, salads, and breakfast dishes all showing just how easy and delicious it can be to add these minuscule marvels to your daily diet. Some of our favorites include Chocolate Chia Pudding, Seed-Crusted Tofu Cutlets (cover image), and the Paradise Smoothie.
