They may have been last summer's darlings, but chia seeds have definitely not gone out of style. A great source of omega-3 fatty acids, they have 5 grams of fiber per tablespoon and nutrients including iron, calcium, magnesium and zinc.
Check out this pint-size superfood this weekend at The Chia Co's pop-up bar in the Flatiron District. Beginning at 8 a.m., they're giving away free Chia Pods in an array of fruit flavors, as well as lemon-date, vanilla and coffee bean, all made with seeds that are grown sustainably and without chemicals. Catch them through Sunday!
