Chia seeds

Here’s a crazy fact: Chia is in fact the Mayan word for “strength”. Yup! Chia seeds were used by the Mayans and Aztecs for their ability to provide sustainable energy throughout the day. While they were a daily staple way back then, only in recent years has our society recognised their incredible nutritional value and hailed them as a “superfood”! These days they are frequently consumed by health conscious individuals world wide.

 

They are super rich in:

  • Protein
