Aztec Gold Chia Seeds

Aztec Gold Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are native to South America and dates back to the time of Aztecs and Mayans. The Aztecs and Mayans consumed chia seeds on a daily basis because they were plentiful and a good sustain of energy.

I HIGHLY recommend growing your chia seeds. All you need is pinch of chia seeds. If you have a backyard that's ideal. If you don't, just simply plant the seeds in a cup or something bigger. I put about 6 seeds in a glass jar. After about two weeks three of the seeds are sprouting and they are adorable. I water them every other day. They are not hard to grow at all. Chia seeds are not too picky but definitely thrives better in warm weather. 

Many Americans lack fibers, calcium, magnesium, etc. Chia seed is a considered a super food because it provides so many nutrients that our body needs. What is so good about chia seeds is that they contain protein. Chia seed may become an important essential in vegan diets. In fact, with all the dangerous chemicals in our meet (especially in the US), chia seeds can replace the protein in meat.  Chia seed is also great for weigh loss because they give you a boost of energy without the corn syrup, sugar, caffeine and other stuff that our body cannot digest.
Chia seeds can be used in all kind of cooking, from drinking to cooking and baking.
I sprinkle chia seeds in my drinks and let them sit overnight so that they can absorb all the liquid and become a jelly like texture. You can make chia seed pudding as well. You can add fruits, oatmeal, berries, etc. They are delicious and very healthy.
