Chia Seeds: A Mighty Little Seed
Way Beyond Green Hair on Terra Cotta!
Thankfully the time has come when these mighty little seeds have moved into the spotlight as a superfood and aren’t just sprouted “hair” on a figurine. They’ve earned a reputation for being among the healthiest foods on earth because they’re teeming with nutrients that support great health for the whole body. A big plus? They’re easy to incorporate into your diet.
Chia Seeds were a dietary staple in ancient Aztec and Mayan cultures. They’ve made their way into our diets and are we glad! Chia Seeds are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3s and antioxidants. They’re also a great source of calcium, magnesium, manganese and phosphorus and contain a good amount of other vitamins and minerals. All this nutritional info means that when you add Chia Seeds to your diet, you can help improve your blood sugar levels, reduce inflammation, improve heart health, help with insulin tolerance and much more.
Chia Seeds have a very mild taste, making them a versatile addition to your diet. Add Bella Viva Orchards Chia Seeds ground or whole to your favorite smoothie, mix them into your yogurt or sprinkle them on your salad. Add them to lemonade for a Mexican-inspired refresher, to your overnight oats with any of our Chopped Dried Fruits or to your favorite banana bread recipe for a dose of healthy goodness. We’re sure you’ll find countless ways to add them to your diet. Now give yourself a serving of our Chia Seeds before planting them on a terra cotta figurine!
