The Chia Cookbook: Inventive, Delicious Recipes Featuring Nature's Superfood by Janie Hoffman
This book begins with interesting facts about chia and claims that it is a superfood that can do everything from increase energy to aid in weight loss to lowering blood pressure. I am not sure that I believe all those claims, but they are interesting. I did learn that Salba, which a friend of mine sold years ago is simply white chia seeds. The book has a good selection of recipes that include chia and I have tried several of them and they are fabulous! I love the Spiced watermelon feta salad and have also made and enjoyed the ancient grains salad with roasted asparagus and the amazing chia banana nut muffins to name a few. I received this book free to review from Netgalley and I highly recommend it.
