Chia seeds have first been used by the Aztecs who valued them for long lasting energy, fiber, amino acids, and nutrients they provided. Chia seeds contain many nutritional benefits, such as omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, calcium, phosphorus and many others that help improve our overall health. They are also pretty light to eat and can be made into delicious desserts, especially puddings and parfaits. Since this is the season of holidays, you can make a chia seed dessert as a perfect healthy addition to your breakfast or dessert menu.
