chia seed discovery

Okay, so I may be a little slow on the uptake here, but while sprinkling some chia seeds onto my salad last night, it occurred to me that the name chia was familiar. As in: ch-ch-chia. And then it dawned on me: could these seeds that we have recently incorporated into our diet be the very same that chia pets are made of? I admit, I have never grown a chia pet, but these seeds were familiar from all those commercials:

After a quick google search, it was confirmed: I eat chia pet seeds.

Turns out, these tiny little seeds have some awesome health benefits and are tasteless so they can be thrown into all kinds of meals, salads-even scrambled eggs! They are full of fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, minerals and antioxidants. Get some!

Some of my googling has caused the realization that most of you probably already know this, but it’s news to me! As a self proclaimed foodie, these are the things I am compelled to blog about. Well this and my favorite ice cream flavors…you’re welcome!
