Wisdom Wednesday

Try chia seeds for a nutritional boost. Rich in iron, fiber, calcium, omega-3 fat and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), these little black seeds swell up in water and when consumed provide hydration. Add 1 Tbsp of ground chia seeds to 3 Tbsp of water to replace eggs in recipes. Add chia seeds to your veggie smoothie. Sprinkle it on your salad. Add it to oatmeal. Even bake it in your favorite cookie. You'll enjoy lower blood pressure, reduced inflammation and improved blood sugar regulation. Not bad for a little seed that some used to plaster onto animal-shaped clay.
