Chia seeds are of the salvia variety and are packed with omega-3 fatty acids as well as protein and fiber. They are traditionally used in food preparation in Mexico and appear where one might find a grain -- in bread, in porridge, in pudding. Though, let's the honest, we all recognize the name from those terra cotta guys who sprouted hair --- ch-ch-ch-chia!
