    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 sustaining energy they provided. And the tiny chia seed does deliver a remarkable amount of nutrition for its size! An excellent 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. Reported health benefits of eating chia seeds include:

    • decreased inflammation and joint pain
    • lowered cholesterol levels
    • increased energy levels
    • enhanced athletic performance
    • improved digestion and regularity
    • augmented weight loss
    • refined appearance of skin, hair, and nails

    More than 25 recipes ranging from desserts, snacks, and beverages to casseroles, soups, salads, and breakfast dishes show how easy—and delicious!—it can be to add these minuscule marvels to your daily diet.
