Chia (Salvia hispanica) is a member of the mint family. It originated in Mexico’s central valley, and was an important part of the Aztec and Mayan diets. Chia seeds are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, protein, minerals and vitamin B.
A popular use of chia seeds is as “chia gel.” Just mix 1/3 cup chia seeds with 2 cups water in a jar, shake and refrigerate – the gel will develop in a few hours or overnight and is good for 3 weeks! It can be added to creamy and liquid foods (e.g. salad dressings, yogurt, puddings) – to boost nutrition and act as a fat and calorie displacer. You can also make the gel with your favorite juice and have a delicious and nutritious drink. Chia has a mild taste so you can add it to just about anything- sauces, soups, bread, brownie or cookie batter, smoothies, and more to add nutrition and an energy boost without changing the flavor.
