What is National Chia Day?
On March 23rd, National Chia Day honors the tiny chia seed. This powerful plant is known for its many health benefits. Chia seeds are an excellent source of energy and healing. The Maya and Aztecs used them for their nutritional value. Now, people around the world consume them because they are easy to use and taste great. Ancient warriors would carry chia seeds in their waist pouch and eat them for energy. They didn't need to stop and eat any other food during long journeys. Chia seeds have been a staple food of the Aztec diet and the Mayan language since then. Chia seeds are incredibly nutritious. High in Omega-3s, fiber and antioxidants, they're also a complete protein. They have a neutral flavor and can be added to any recipe.
