The Chia Seed Cookbook : Eat Well, Feel Great, Lose Weight

By (author) Myseeds Chia Test Kitchen

You may have heard of chia plants (or at least Chia Pets), but do you know just how good the plant's tiny seeds are for you, and how versatile they are? The chia plant is a relative of the mint plant. It makes tiny, flavorless, gluten-free seeds that are chock full of antioxidants and fiber, and when combined with water, they can be used as a replacement for butter or oil in your favorite baked goods. In addition, the seeds contain an oil that naturally repels pests, making it easy for farmers to grow the seeds organically, without the use of pesticides. If that's not enough to convince you to try them, consider that chia seeds help balance blood sugar, prevent diseases such as diverticulitis and diverticulosis, and contain the essential fatty acid omega-3, which lowers hypertension and benefits your heart.
