Did you know…All about Chia Seeds

We’ve all heard of chia seeds, made famous by the Chia Pet commercials. However, this tiny little seed is a powerhouse of nutrients, considered a superfood by many people. (Including your’s truly!) So, where did they originate? Why are they so nutritious?


God bless and namaste my friends.๐Ÿ™





About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes โ€œGood, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.โ€ I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.

  1. Good info thanks


  2. Tamara what I always love about the videos you find is that they are short and sweet. You get some great “healthy” information too. I never cared for the Chia Pet because I couldn’t get the darn thing to grow right, but I do enjoy putting ground Chia seeds in my smoothies. As a vegetarian I’m always looking for healthy ways to get some protein. Skippy peanut butter may or may not be it when I have Chia seeds in the cabinet. Thanks for sharing!

    Note: I will be humming the Chia Pet jingle the rest of the day.
