Perhaps best known as the source of "fur" on novelty planters called Chia Pets, chia is the highly nutritious seed of a desert plant called Salvia hispanica. An important part of the diet of ancient Aztecs and Mayans, chia seed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vital minerals including calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. It has a nutty flavor – sprinkle seeds whole or ground on cereal, in yogurt or on salads, or grind and mix them with flour when baking. Chia is undergoing a well-deserved renaissance, and is widely available in online and in natural food stores. Seek out organic versions and experiment – you’ll likely find it a tasty addition to your diet!
