Dry Goods, Quinoa, & Chia Seeds

Chia and Quinoa, both are relatively obscure foods with ancient American origins; both can serve as substitutes for grains — like wheat and rice — which are staples of many diets around the world. The nutrient-rich seeds are good sources of α-linolenic acid (an omega-3 fatty acid), fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, prompting claims that chia is “superfood.”
