You’ve probably heard a lot about Chia seeds lately because they are the new ’super food.’ Let’s take a look at some of their benefits They are Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, provide fiber, calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, molybdenum, niacin, zinc and they do not have to be ground to make their nutrients available to the body!

That’s a pretty POWERFUL seed! No wonder it’s creating such a buzz.
The lovely people at ChiaSeedsDirect.com sent me a sample to try! They sell the highest quality chia seeds at very low prices with free shipping on all U.S. orders (awesome!!) Check out their website for some more information about the seed.
Here are some great foods you can add Chia Seeds to:
