Chia seeds, mostly associated with a modern day sprouting novelty item, were used for centuries as a staple food by the Indians of the Southwest and Mexico. When consumed, the seeds form a fibrous gel of carbohydrates that the metabolism breaks down into sugar at a very slow rate.

This provides the body with an extended energy source that does not spike blood sugar. Further, chia is packed with nutrients and is especially high in omega-3 fatty acids, which protect against heart disease.

Sprinkle ground or whole Chia seeds on cereal, yogurt, salads or mix with flour when making baked goods. If eating this nutty-tasting whole-grain as a snack, combine with water to guard against dehydration; Chia seeds absorb 12 times their weight in water.

Any seeds not consumed can be stored in the refrigerator.

3 packages (5 ounces each)
