Chia is actually a member of the Mint family and is native to Mexico. Chia seeds are consumed like whole grains, but they’re pseudo-grain. That means they’re the carbohydrate-rich seeds of a nongrass plant. When chia seeds encounter liquid, they expand and form a thick gel.
Chia seeds were said to be a staple of Aztec and Mayan diets but were later banned because of their ritualistic religious use. Over the last century or so, they’ve enjoyed a minor following but recently made a comeback on the market as a potential superfood.
An effective way of consuming this superfood is to soak the seeds in liquids so they swell up and digest faster.
How to Do:
Chia seeds are not only rich in nutrients, omega-3 fat, antioxidants, and fiber but also easy to prepare. People commonly add them to their porridge or smoothies.
Studies suggest they have various health benefits, including weight loss and reduced inflammation.
If you don’t eat chia seeds already, you should definitely consider adding them to your diet. They’re among the few superfoods worthy of the title.
Storage Info: Refrigeration is not required. Store in a cool, dark, dry place.
