LifeFoods Black Chia Seeds are Certified Organic and packed with protein. Chia is a small seed which was eaten by the Aztecs and is known for its durability. The Aztec's called it the 'running food' as they would carry it in a small pouch and take the equivalent of one teaspoon which would give them enough energy to march for 24 hours.
How to Use Chia Seeds:
Chia has many uses and can be simply sprinkled onto a yoghurt, muesli, salad, stir fry, curry, or you can add it your smoothie, a juice or simply put in your water bottle and sip it through out the day to get a constant stream of energy. They are versatile so can be added to almost any dish to get more nutrition into your diet.
In a smoothie they go well with goji berries and cacao powder for that yummy chocolate flavour.
