You may think Chia seeds are a new trendy “superfood” but

they are a truly ancient dating back to; Aztec, Mayan,

Mesoamerica, and Norte Chico civilizations. Chia seeds are

a “whole grain” food, and are usually grown organically,

non-GMO and naturally free of gluten. The tiny seeds are

high in protein, antioxidants, boron, calcium, iron,

potassium and even essential fatty acids, omega 3 & 6.

There is one precaution that must be taken to get all

this nutrition.  All nuts and seeds contain phytic acid,

it’s nature’s way to protect them from insects,  it’s bad

news because it’s a micronutrient depleter, for human

consumption.  Sprouting/soaking nuts & seeds reduces

the phytic acid making nuts & seeds much more

digestible.  The recipe for chia seeds crackers including

sprouting is at end of this post.  Click below for Walnut
