National Chia Day
On March 23rd, National Chia Day recognizes the tiny, yet powerful chia seed that has earned its reputation as being one of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet. Revered by the Maya and Aztecs for their amazing healing powers and natural energy, chia seeds have become a trusted staple for people around the world and can be enjoyed in many foods and beverages!
High in Omega-3s, antioxidants, fiber, and complete protein, chia seeds are neutral in flavor and can be added to virtually any recipe to boost the nutritional profile.
