Chia: The Complete Guide to the Ultimate Superfood

Author(s): Wayne Coates

Cooking, Food & Wine

For people trying to lose weight and enhance well-being, it's a little miracle: chia, a tiny seed that the Aztecs used for centuries as a super food, provides a complete source of dietary protein with more omega-3 fatty acids than salmon and more fibre, but fewer carbs, than rice, grains and corn. In fact, chia is a gluten-free natural appetite suppressant that helps regenerate muscle, sustain energy and balance blood-sugar. This definitive work covers the history and benefits of chia and features a comprehensive daily strategy for weight loss, plus delicious recipes.
