Chia seeds (pronounced chee'ah) are an ancient wonder grain that served as a powerfood for the Aztecs, Incas and Mayans for over 3,000 years. Chia - the Mayan word for "strength" - was consumed in bread just before battle or mixed in water before running or hunting long distances. Because of its amazing nutrient value, chia seeds were prized more than gold and were even used as medicine.
