If you are like me, you can’t help but sing the “Ch, ch, ch, chia” jingle when you eat your daily chia seeds. Who knew these little black seeds that grew on funny terra cotta figures was actually a superfood?
I love chia seeds! I love the way they make me feel. I love how they help me maintain a consistent weight, how they help me stay hydrated, and I love their flavor. From chia seed pudding to Thanksgiving cranberry sauce, you will find chia in at least one meal of mine a day.

A traditional South American crop, chia seed (Latin name Salvia hispanica L.) has been used for thousands of years. In fact, archeological evidence indicates that humans have been using chia as early as 3500 BCE!
Making a comeback in healthy diets, these super seeds are an excellent source of essential minerals such as phosphorous, manganese, calcium, sodium and potassium. In fact, to provide a comparison, 3 tbsp. of chia has:
- 15x more magnesium than broccoli
- 6x more calcium than whole milk
- 30% more antioxidants than blueberries
- 2x more potassium than bananas
We aren’t kidding when we say these tiny seeds pack a mighty punch!
