Chia seeds?
Anyone use chia seeds? If so, in what?

I sprinkled them on top of my salad dressing. I don't eat them currently. My ex puts them in his protein shake, I think.

all i can think of are those chia pets :laugh:

Yeah, you can use your old pantyhose and fill it with dirt, then make a paste with chia seeds and water on top. Add some googley eyes and name him Herman. In a few days, you can style him up! And in all that time, you won't be eating poorly!

I've used them in my green smoothies.

I've been meaning to try in overnight oats too.

My son just started putting them in his protein shakes.

I use them in a hot cereal I've recently started making that also has ground flax meal in it....makes a really good substitute for something like Wheatina cereal, which I can't eat anymore because I have Celiac Disease.

netrition has so many different ones-can anybody suggest which kind to order? black, white etc? TIA

I keep an old salt shaker with ground chia on my table and sprinkle them on my food like pepper. It's an effortless, tasteless way to get some in my diet everyday.

cereal and crackers

Shouldn't matter nutrition-wise... if you're making something like the chia pudding, or trying to add them to foods without freaking people out, you might want to get white. If you want to use them like poppy seeds, get black. They don't taste any different.

I use them to make chocolate chia pudding. Tastes great, and my blood glucose readings are always good after eating it, too.

jbatchelor 03-25-2013 08:42 PM

Thanks for the reply-way too many to choose from...I will probably order the white to start and try.

This is a really good thread.

Soobee told me you can grind them up in meatloaf for moistness and it works.

jbatchelor 03-27-2013 12:01 AM

Thanks Esther! that looks like an awesome thread--thanks for sharing!

rosethorns 03-27-2013 07:58 AM

Your Welcome Jeanne. There is some really good stuff in there.

I only put them in my drinks. I like how they get a little gooey, crunchy after they sit. You shake them up (I like them in flavored water bottles). It kind of reminds me of strawberry seeds.
