Q: I have heard a lot of great things about chia seeds, but how can I incorporate them into my diet?
Brandon Marsh answers
A: I like to think of myself as a bit of a “foodie,” because I enjoy spending time in the kitchen, experimenting with new and different ingredients. Of course, my love for cooking is complemented by my love for sport. So when I read “Born to Run” by Christopher McDougall, I was intrigued by the benefits of chia seeds. The book explains how chia seeds were a staple of the Tarahumara Indians, who are famous for their long-distance running prowess. With this knowledge top of mind, I cooked up a few ideas of my own.
