Small wonder these seeds are central to the diets of many native cultures of Mexico and Guatemala; some historians claim that they were even used as a form of currency by Aztecs. Whether that’s truth or myth, nutritionally they’re worth their weight in gold. Find Navitas Naturals chia in seed or powder at natural markets, $6. www.navitasnaturals.com
