An El Salvadorean buddy of mine told me to get Chia Seeds because they helped to heal sprains and strains. He said that carrot juice was good for this also.
I hunted down some Chia seeds at Simply Wholesome at Slauson and Overhill in Los Angeles. They were about $9 for a good size pouch.
The history of the seed is very interesting. This fact list says that the Spanish conquistadors outlawed the seed and other native foods and agricultural systems. Fascinating.
I prefer Chia seeds to flax seeds because they don’t have any flavor. They are fun to put in juice because they get a boba-like consistency around them and add more substance to the drink. Now that I know it so good for you, I’m going to find ways to include it in my everyday eating patterns.
