Grown in Mexico, Chia was a diet staple of the Aztecs and Mayans. The seed's nutrients provided sustained energy during long hunts and had numerous medicinal benefits.

Chia "Pudding" Recipe: In a shaker bottle, mix together 1/4 cup chia seeds, 1 1/2 cups almond milk, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla, and 1 tablespoon maple syrup, honey, or equivalent Stevia. For chocolate flavor, add a teaspoon of cocoa powder. For additional protein, add a scoop of your favorite unflavored protein powder. (If using a sweetened, flavored protein powder, you may want to omit the vanilla and sweeteners.) Shake well and make sure chia seeds are completely covered by almond milk. Refrigerate overnight. The chia seeds will soak up the milk and become thick, similar to tapioca. Eat with a spoon or "slurp it up" with a straw. Delicious and nutritious!
