Chia: Using the Ancient Superfood



Chia: Using the Ancient Superfood was written by one of our favorite vegan chefs, Beverly Lynn Bennett. Grown as a staple crop for centuries in North, Central, and South America, chia seeds were highly prized by Aztec warriors and athletes for the sustained energy they provided. An excellent source of low-fat, plant-based protein and both soluble and insoluble fiber, chia seeds also contain eight times the amount of essential fatty acids (EFAs) found in salmon. You will find more than 25 recipes ranging from desserts, snacks, and beverages to casseroles, soups, salads, and breakfast dishes; all showing how easy and delicious it can be to add these minuscule marvels to your daily diet.
