Do you Chia?

6 Flares 6 Flares ×



Have you ever used chia? I have used it in a few recipes, as well as an egg substitute. Chia contains ALA, alpha-linolenic acid, which is an Omega-3 essential fatty acid that supports heart health and fiber which supports normal functioning of the digestive tract. Chia seeds are easily digestible and don’t have to be ground.


A suggested serving is 1 tablespoon a day. One way to make sure you get this is to add Chia to iced tea or any other drink. Place 1 tablespoon chia seeds in 1/3 cup water and let sit for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. That’s it! Just add it to juice or tea and enjoy. It took me a while to get used to it, they kind of taste like tiny boba. I have learned to just swallow instead of chew on the seeds.

  2. I use chia seeds! Right now, I add them to “refrigerator oatmeal”. They don’t add anything to the texture or the taste. I ave also added them to homemade granola bars and granola. Trader Joe’s just starting carrying them.

    Just recently we started growing our own wheat grass for using in our smoothies. Chia seeds might be a nice addition. 😉

    SO many friends of mine have been using this lately, but I haven’t been able to bring myself to spend the money on a bag of my own, haha!
