Ch-ch-ch-CHIA!



Is chia the new acai? For a couple of years, it seemed that acai was the new little power-packed wonder food. Now, I am hearing all sorts of things about chia seeds. Turns out these tiny little morsels are packed with omega-3 fatty acids. Yes, I'm talking about the seeds that come with a Chia Pet. Who knew?

I'm thinking about getting some chia seeds to blend into a smoothie, sprinkle over a salad or stir into soup. My only fear is that, while I increase my omega-3 intake, I might someday sprout little, green, leafy sprigs from every pore!

LOL! I know. I thought the same thing: People are eating chia seeds? All the poor little bald chia pets!
