Chia Seeds have earned a reputation for being among the healthiest foods on earth because they’re teeming with nutrients that support great health for the whole body. As a plus, they’re easy to incorporate into your diet. Originally a dietary staple in ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures, they’ve made their way into our diets as a superfood. Chia Seeds are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3s and antioxidants. They’re also a great source of calcium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus and contain a good amount of other vitamins and minerals.When you include Chia Seeds in your diet, you may help improve your blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, improve heart health, help with insulin tolerance and much more.
Chia Seeds have a very mild taste, making them a versatile addition to your diet. Add them ground or whole to your favorite smoothie or Mexican-inspired lemonade, mix them into your yogurt or sprinkle them on your salad. Try them in your overnight oats with any of our Chopped Dried Fruits or to your favorite banana bread recipe for a dose of healthy goodness.
