Kelly Slater recently teamed up with The Chia Co to help raise awareness for this uniquely potent superfood.
Chia seeds are abundant in fibre, protein, Omega-3 and other essential nutrients and are perfectly digestible in their natural, untouched state. In this video Kelly talks about the importance of a healthy diet and nutrition while learning about sustainable farming in Australia.
Food for me is about being able to know first-hand what I’m working with and where it comes from so that I can educate more people about it. This is a product that is so healthy for people and is going worldwide. You can tell it’s an honour for them to be growing this plant.
