Summary

You may have heard of chia plants (or at least Chia Pets),but do you know just how good the plant's tiny seeds are for you, and howversatile they are? The chia plant is a relative of the mint plant. It makestiny, flavorless, gluten-free seeds that are chock full of antioxidants andfiber, and when combined with water, they can be used as a replacement forbutter or oil in your favorite baked goods. In addition, the seeds contain anoil that naturally repels pests, making it easy for farmers to grow the seedsorganically, without the use of pesticides. If that's not enough to convinceyou to try them, consider that chia seeds help balance blood sugar, preventdiseases such as diverticulitis and diverticulosis, and contain the essentialfatty acid omega-3, which lowers hypertension and benefits your heart. It's surprisingly easy to cook and bake with chia seeds, andbecause they take on the flavor of whatever ingredients they're mixed with,they'll only enhance your favorite dishes. Here's a sampling of the nearly 100recipes included: Sunny Sweet Potato and Chocolate Chip Chia Muffins Easy Chia Oat Squares Peanut Butter Chia Waffles Lemon Chia Cheesecake Pancakes Cranberry Chia Couscous Southwest Chia Bean Burgers Citrus Scallops and Veggie Stir Fry Fresh Chia Lime Soup Chia Triple Fruit Crisp Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies Sophisticated Chocolate Orange Cake Oh-So-Lemon Cupcakes Chia Lemon Hummus
