Are you a busy mom trying to get your kids off to school with a full stomach of good nutrition? Why not consider adding Chia to everyday breakfasts like pancakes, smoothies or yogurt?
Chia is the worlds’ richest plant-based source of Omega-3 fatty acids, surpassing even flax seeds. These seeds are unique because they contain all nine types of protein (great for vegetarians).
