The WONDERS of Chia Seeds!
For years, chia seeds were almost exclusively associated with sprouting terracotta pets and heads. That is, until Chris McDougall published his novel, Born to Run in 2009.

Seemingly overnight, chia seeds became a hot commodity with runners, cyclists, triathletes and other athletes, seeking the secret to Tarahumara endurance.

But soon the trend also caught on with food bloggers, chefs, foodies, and generally health-conscious people. Now, chia seeds are commonly included in energy bars and drinks, added to kombucha, used to thicken puddings, and used as a binding agent in egg-free baking.

And for good reason! These little seeds are incredibly nutritious, with significant concentrations of protein, fiber and several essential minerals.
