Chia Seeds: More than Just a Pet
What has more calcium than milk, eight-times more omega 3s than salmon and has more antioxidants than berries? The answer is the chia seed. The chia seed is in the mint family and is native to Mexico, Peru, and Boliva. It was used by the Aztecs in 3500 B.C. and gained popularity in the 1990s for its nutritional properties and during the 1980s for being a house plant.
