Organic Chia 1.75 lb Bag
Chia seed is an ancient food that's become very popular for its nutritional properties. Some interesting background on chia seed: Native Indian peoples in the Americas have long used chia seed as a staple food. Aztec warriors of Mexico subsisted on chia seeds during their battles and hunting expeditions. Indians of the Southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon of chia seeds during a 24-hour march. Indians ran from the Colorado River to the Pacific Ocean to trade turquoise for shells, carrying only a pouch of chia seed for nourishment. Sustained by chia seeds, the Tarahumara Indians of Mexico hunted by running their prey to exhaustion. In 1997, a 52 year old Tarahumara Indian, Cirildo Chacarito, won a 100-mile run in California. Completing the race in a time of 19 hours, 37 minutes and 3 seconds, he beat a field of hundreds of competitors with a half hour lead wearing homemade tire tread sandals. Because of its powerful nutritional properties, chia seed is a perfect survival food.
