Ingredients – Chia Seed
Although chia seed first gained its popularity by generating the “hair” for Chia Pets, it is actually a fiber and nutrient dense super food that has endless culinary uses. Chia seed is abundant in protein, essential vitamins and minerals, amino acids, and antioxidants. A one-ounce serving (about 2 tablespoons) actually provides more than 40% of the recommended daily fiber intake. Chia seed is obtained from the flowers of a plant in the mint family that thrives in the warm climates of Mexico and western North America.
Chia seeds have a mild, nutty flavor and taste similar to poppy seeds when raw. Chia seeds can be used to thicken foods, to make puddings, or added to salads, soups and baked goods. They are also tasty on yogurt and cereal, and can be sprouted to produce microgreens for salads, sandwiches and wraps. In Mexico, chia seeds are mixed with water, lime and sugar to create the popular drink chia fresca.
