Now I have started adding chia to my juice. I have read great things about this seed and so I had to
try it. Ally a fellow blogger from Made Of Stars said she adds chia to her juice every morning and also cooks with it. Which I also did for the first time in my Vegan Black Bean Sausage Patties recipe.
I am reading a book called Born To Run by Christopher Mcdougall he writes about chai saying
“As tiny as those seeds are, theyre superpacked with omega-3s, omega-6s, protein, calcium, iron, zinc, fiber, and antioxidants” He also writes “Chia was once so treasured, the Aztecs used to
deliver it to their king in homage. Aztec runners used to chomp chia seeds as they went and the Hopis fueled themselves on chia during their epic runs from Arizona to the Pacific
Ocean” Now as I runner I related to that and maybe it is the boost I need to run for longer..
