Mango Chia Seed Parfait

Growing up the only chia seeds ( Salvia hispanica)  I heard of were part of a novelty gift set that came along with a catchy song ( Go ahead sing it…chi chi chi chia!). We have since then learned to use those amazing Omega-3 filled seeds for a much better purpose… Our nutrition. Chia seeds are rich in Calcium, Iron and Magnesium just to name a few nutrients and more importantly they help you feel fuller longer! As a gym rat I understand that we have to eat every 2-3 hours and no one like a HANGRY gym rat. Here’s a sweet spin on chi chi chi chia seeds!
