Why are Chia Seeds so good for you?
By Kristinhong on January 23, 2013
Ch, ch, ch, chia (seeds)! These little guys have become quite popular in the health and nutrition realm. After receiving a few questions from friends about them, I decided to do a little research and try them out.
Just a little background: Chia seeds are part of the Salvia hispanica, a flowering plant of the mint family. This plant is cultivated in Mexico and Guatemala. Chia seeds have been a staple food source for Native Americans for centuries. Aztec warriors (yes, warriors!) would eat chia during hunting trips, and on trips to trade products in which they ran from the Colorado River to the Pacific Ocean.
In summary: Eat chia = run for hundreds of miles= become a warrior. Need I say more?
