Editorial Reviews

STARRED REVIEW "Chia is an edible seed that comes from the desert plantSalvia hispanica, grown in Mexico and dating back to Mayan and Aztec cultures. "Chia" means strength, and folklore has it that these cultures used the tiny black and white seeds as an energy booster. That makes sense, as chia seeds are a concentrated food containing healthy omega-3 fatty acids, carbohydrates, fiber, antioxidants, protein, and calcium. Today chia is a popular addition to the wide variety of health foods available to adventurous eaters. Boone, a registered dietitian, speaker, and writer (Powerful Plant-Based Superfoods), has compiled a handbook of chia information that will be useful to readers ready to explore using the seed in their cooking. The book focuses on integrating chia seeds into common recipes: granola, smoothies, soups, main courses, and desserts. A thorough index gives access to the information in the book, and bright color photos help to inspire the cook. Particularly useful are a list of FAQs that will answer most questions that a newcomer to chia will have. The science on the benefits of chia use is controversial; readers will have to choose for themselves.Verdict A popular addition to general food collections. Chia is trendy these days, and there will be a demand for the information in this book." ?" Library Journal, Xpress Reviews
