I've had chia seeds, don't know what they are supposed to "do", they were nondescript, sunflower seeds are cheaper. Those seeds arn't going to perform anything extra, just another choice in the world of selling health foods. If only we all had the money to invest in these products though.

It doesn't really have any flavor (I'm told); It's usually used to add fiber to things you're preparing, like muffins, stews, etc. But, while 1 ounce of chia seeds has 12g carbs and 11g fiber, it also has 137 calories.

Flaxseed meal may be a better option, if you like - For 1 ounce (2 TBsp), there's 4g carbs, 4g fiber, and only 60 calories.

Hope this helps,
Michele

they are mucilaginous, and when mixed with coconut milk (or other liquid), make a kind of "pudding". raw vegans and primal eaters top this with fruit for dessert. i bought some to try because i was curious, i'll let you know what i think of them.

i'm new, i love to cook and i'm happy to see this thread to get ideas for good LC things to eat. here's what i think i'm having today:

brunch: 2 fried eggs; roasted eggplant with roasted almonds and goat cheese

dinner: either beefy borscht or roast chicken and massaged kale salad

Thanks, Tao and Michele and Doris,
If I had them, it would only be 1/2 oz sprinkled on my salad or in my yogurt, in the same way I use flaxseed meal. I read they were even high in Omega 3 than Flaxseed so that is saying something. In fact, I would probably do 1/4 oz of them and 1/4 oz flaxseed. I like them both. It is nice to hear about another thickener that is good for you.

Mary, when you use flaxseeds, they just go "through" your system, you don't get any of their benefits at all, only the flaxmeal will give you some benefits, and really, not nearly as much as you might think, in fact. Try to eat more fish if you worry about Omega 3's is what I'm saying. Do you subscribe to "Nutrition Action", a newsletter that gets no money from advertisers of any product, they have a website, too. Just trying to save you money and time from buying products that won't help you very much, but the products advertisers try to make you think they will help.

Ditto what Doris said. Just follow the money and you will see that most of these product claims are just trying to get you to part with your money. Much like politicians.

Doris, I grind the flaxseed to meal and find the meal more satisfying with its nutty taste. It was recommended by my dr 8 yrs ago to reduce CRP levels and it is working. I went from a 13 to a 1.

But I did bur some tilapia and haddock for this week too. Thx.

i just tried chia pudding, made with 1/2 cup chia, 1 1/2 light coconut milk, 2 T almond butter, 2 t vanilla extract, a pinch of salt and some sweetener. all you do is mix it all together and let it sit. i served mine topped with homemade berry sauce.

i am in heaven! i love tapioca pudding, but of course i don't eat it any more. chia pudding has a similar consistency -- of course the pearls are tiny seeds, but the rest is about the same. and the seeds are practically flavorless, so the pudding has the taste of whatever you flavor it with, a lot like tapioca. i am ecstatic to have another easy low-carb dessert, and this one's high fiber to boot. i love it!

i read you can get chia cheap in latin markets on another thread. there's one right down the street from me, so i'm going to check it out.
