Chia seeds were staples in both Aztec and Mayan societies. Their, nutty flavor and ease of preparation are still popular today. Chia seeds can be eaten as they are - they do not require being crushed.
Chia seeds are keto- and paleo-friendly. They are also a great ingredient for wholesome dishes: chia seeds have a mild flavor that doesn’t overpower dishes, and the water absorptive properties make them perfect for a fast-and-easy chia seed pudding.
