Chia Pet seeds are being touted as the new super food.

The seeds claim to provide fiber and can be a substitute for whole grains. 

 Some trainers are even recommending the seeds to clients for their good food properties. 

 "It has a lot of protein in it.  Also, the omega-3 content; so, healthy fats and oils are going to be, um, consumed with that as well," says physical trainer Keri Anderson.

The tiny little seeds are sprouting up on shelves all cover the country.
