Publisher’s Description: 

Discover how easy it is to add these minuscule marvels to your daily diet. Grown as a staple crop for centuries in North, Central, and South America, chia seeds were highly prized by Aztec warriors and athletes for the sustained energy they provided. The tiny chia seed delivers a remarkable amount of nutrition for its size! An excellent source of low-fat, plant-based protein and both soluble and insoluble fiber, chia seeds contain eight times the amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in salmon.

Reported health benefits of eating chia seeds include
● decreased inflammation and joint pain
● lowered cholesterol levels
● increased energy levels
● enhanced athletic performance
● improved digestion and regularity
● augmented weight loss
● refined appearance of skin, hair, and nails

More than 25 recipes range from desserts, snacks, and beverages to casseroles, soups, salads, and breakfast dishes show how deliciously you can eat and reap extra nutrition at the same time.
