Chia is the Mayan word for strength. The seeds were used by these ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures as mega-energy food, by their running messengers, who would carry a small pouch with them for sustenance.

What are Chia seeds? 

Chia seed is a wholegrain food because it contains all components of the grain; the Bran, Germ and Endosperm. Research also shows that eating wholegrain foods can help lower the risk of being overweight and lower the risk of diet related disease such as diabetes and heart disease.

Chia is a great natural source of complete protein (20% protein in each serve) with all 8 essential amino acids. The human body uses protein to build and repair tissue, hair and nails and must draw it from the diet as protein isn’t stored in the body.

Chia seed has much in common with Flaxseed however the distinct advantage is that Chia’s natural antioxidants make them stable whereas flax quickly becomes rancid.

Sprinkle Chia Seeds raw on your foods as a nutrition booster.  Add to breakfast cereals, salads and baking.  When mixed with water, Chia seeds swell and form mucilage, a gel that can be added to smoothies, juices, soups, sauces and well pretty much anything.

Wonderful product. I usually have these as a breakfast 'pudding' as they keep me powering through the day and seem to prevent afternoon fatigue. The best recipe I've found so far is: 3 tsbp chia seeds, 1/2 cup coconut cream, 1/2 cup almond milk, 3 tsbp of dessicated coconut, and 1 chopped mango. Just all chucked in a bowl and then popped into the fridge. I make it the night before, only takes 5 mins, and lasts for the next 2/3 breakfast. Waking up to it is a total treat!

Chia seeds are so easy to add into your daily diet, I have them in drinks before going for a run and also have some to drink on my runs if it going to be a long run, I certainly get a boost from them. These little seeds are the best and are packed full of goodness, try them :-)
