The Registrar of National Day Calendar® has designated March 23rd of each year as National Chia Day. This day recognizes the tiny, yet powerful chia seed that has earned its reputation as being one of the most nutrient-rich foods on the planet. Revered by the Maya and Aztecs for their amazing healing powers and natural energy, chia seeds have become a trusted staple for people around the world and can be enjoyed in many foods and beverages!
High in Omega-3s, antioxidants, fiber and complete protein, chia seeds are neutral in flavor and can be added to virtually any recipe to boost the nutritional profile.
- 8x more Omega-3s than salmon
- 25% more fiber than flaxseed
- 30% more antioxidants than blueberries
- 2x more potassium than bananas
- 6x more calcium than milk
HOW TO OBSERVE
Add chia to your diet on this day (and every day) to enjoy the strength and vitality that these seeds bring to your life. Start your day with chia granola, power through the day with chia bars, and enjoy chia beverages anytime. Celebrate every meal by adding chia! Post on social media using #NationalChiaDay.
