Check out CHIA, a beautiful salvia, an indegenous food, high in nutrients like flaxseed #GardenCuizine

Check out CHIA
Did you know Chia is a Salvia? Salvias are among my favorite flowers in the garden. Hummingbirds love them too. The special part about chia salvias is their energizing little seeds. Like flaxseeds, chia seeds are rich in nutrients, especially omega-3 essential fatty acids, dietary fiber, manganese, calcium and protein.

For more about Chia, check out this video and my online Chia article series at Dave's Garden:
