What are chia seeds? 

 Chia seeds are tiny, oval-shaped seeds derived from the Salvia hispanica plant, native to Central and South America. Chia seeds have a long history and were an important dietary staple for the Aztecs and Mayans. They were considered sacred food and used in the preparation of folk medicines, food, and canvases.

 Chia seeds are considered a superfood as they are packed with plenty of nutrition like protein, omegas, and fiber. Chia seeds are a favorite smoothie add-in not only for their nutrition but for their ability to make smoothies thicker. Chia seeds may start out small and crunchy but once you place them in liquid, they absorb the liquid and rapidly swell up. The result is a thick gelatinous texture that makes chia seeds an awesome ingredient to use in many recipes from chia seed pudding to chia seed jam. Chia seeds can also be used as a vegan egg replacer in plant-based recipes.

Benefits of Chia Seeds

 These delicious super seeds are a great way to add a boost of vegan-friendly nutrients including both omega-3 and omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids to plant-based meals. Chia seeds also contain plant-based protein, fiber, calcium, and iron.

Ways to enjoy Chia  Seeds

~ Make Chia Pudding: Soak chia seeds in plant-based milk like almond or coconut milk along with maple syrup. Leave it in the refrigerator overnight and top it with fruits, nuts, or granola in the morning for a tasty breakfast.

~ Smoothies: Add a spoonful of chia seeds to your favorite smoothies. They will thicken the smoothie, and add fiber along with 3 g of plant-based protein per tablespoon.

~ Baking: Chia seeds can be used in baking bread, muffins, or cookies. They can also serve as an egg replacement for vegan baking – just mix 1 tablespoon of chia seeds with 3 tablespoons of water and let it sit for about 15 minutes until it becomes gel-like.

~ Toppings: Sprinkle chia seeds on yogurt, oatmeal, salads, or roasted vegetables for a bit of crunch and a boost of fiber. Always be sure to drink liquids if your chia is not being added to liquids as they like to absorb water.
