If my article on Chia Seeds that I wrote here in 2007 didn’t convince you to eat them regularly, probably nothing will. Of the more than 600 articles that I’ve written here, that article is probably the one that received the most attention. Certainly it has received the most comments — 134 so far — and almost all of them are positive.
But now I am trying again. And this time I have more support from the man who rediscovered this ancient Aztec superfood. He also developed the system currently used to harvest and clean chia seeds.
