Chia seeds are all of the rage as of lately – and I have to be honest, I really didn’t know what they were until about a year ago when I decided to buy a bag of the little poppyseed looking seeds at my local grocery store. I remember having a conversation with my sister one day and somehow we got to talking about this mysterious new food craze and we died laughing about how we thought they were called “chee-ah seeds” … like the Chia Pets from back in the day! We have since refined ourselves, to the point that I sometimes incorporate these little delicious seeds into my meals!
Health Benefits of Chia Seeds

-loaded with antioxidants

-loaded with omega-3 fatty acids (more than salmon!)
