ADD THIS INGREDIENT TO YOUR TYENT WATER FOR A HEALTHY BOOST!
Ch-ch-ch-chia! We all remember this song from the Chia Pet commercial. It’s true that the grass seeds used in Chia Pets are the same little seeds that have recently made a big name for themselves.
What Are Chia Seeds?
Chia is an edible seed that comes from a desert plant grown in Mexico. It dates all the way back to Mayan and Aztec times. In the book You Staying Young, authors Dr. Michael Roizen, MD and Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD say that the antioxidant activity of chia seeds is higher than that of any whole food, even blueberries! No wonder chia is called a superfood!
What Do Chia Seeds Contain?
- Omega-3 fatty acids—more than salmon!
- Dietary fiber in high amounts
- Calcium—five times more than milk
- Vitamins A, B, E and D
Chia fresca has been a popular drink in Central America and Mexico for many years. It’s a simple drink made by putting chia seeds in water. When chia seeds are left to soak in water, a gelatinous coating forms around the seed. If you have a problem with textured drinks, this beverage may not be for you. However, the jellied chia seeds are easy to swallow and bring a little extra something to plain water.
