Did you ever have a Chia pet? I did. Well, I had a Chia Tree. I thought it was stupid to grow something with green fur that wasn’t green in real life (I wasn’t the most imaginative of children). I remember having trouble keeping it completely full with water all the time, so while most of the tree grew nicely, the top inch did not.

Why am I bringing this up now? I just read an article on the new “Superfoods” you need to have in your diet — and one was Chia! I had no idea the seed was edible at all, much less such a nutritional food item (with lots of fiber, iron, omega-3, and calcium).

Maybe I should raid my parents basement to see if I can find my old Chia tree to try again!
