Beetlejuice with Chia Seeds_01of03
With all of the buzz going on about chia seeds, one might think that they are a creation of modern society. However, chia seeds have been cultivated and consumed since around 3000 B.C. in Pre-Columbian societies. Chia seeds were regarded so highly by Mayan and Aztec societies that they incorporated the seeds into their religious ceremonies. The seeds were even coined running food, because ancient warriors used the seeds as fuel for their long journeys.
