 Have you heard of Chia? You may be interested in knowing just how much nutrition is packed into these tiny little seeds. In 1 ounce of chia seeds you will find 11 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein, and several vitamins and antioxidants as well. If you’ve yet to try chia, be sure to put it on your next shopping list. Great Harvest in Newtonville would like to help you enjoy trying chia even more by providing you with two easy, healthy, and delicious recipes you can try with chia.
