Did you know that the word “chia” is the ancient Mayan word for “strength.”

 

Chia seeds provide a great amount of nutrition with very few calories, with every 2 tablespoons of chia seeds providing 4 grams of protein and 11 grams of fibre.

They are also packed with antioxidants and Omega 3 fatty acids - not bad for a small seed!

 

Why not give them a try in this recipe, they are also great in salads, smoothies, vegetables, and can even be used as an egg substitute in recipes.
