#7 - Chia Seeds

Sunday, February 17, 2013

On this 7th week of 2013 I ate chia seeds. I'd been reading about some of the health benefits and decided I'd give them a try. So far I've sprinkled them in my omelet, added them to a tuna sandwich and just tonight tried them partially dissolved in a glass of lemon water. I've not noticed much of a flavor other than a mild, slightly sweet nutty taste. Due to the protein, omega3's and fiber benefits, I think it's worth a try to continue experimenting with these tiny seeds. All the articles I've read guarantee that I won't turn into a giant Chia Pet!

I made Dee's Chia pudding--kind of a strange consistency, but I'm sold on the health benefits! Plus I love cinnamon. Hmmm, I might have to try cocoa, too, though. I haven't tried them any other way, but am going to try them in omelets and salads. Enjoy!

    I sure like the Chia Breakfast Pudding.
1/3 cup chia seeds
2 cups almond milk
1-2 tbsp honey
1 tsp cinnamon
stir and let sit in frig over night.
This is actually a "Raw" recipe but I heat mine slightly.
It's very tastey. I have added nutmeg to it also and that is good.
I've wondered how cocoa would taste. It's sort of like cocoa wheats in texture minus the chocolate flavor So I think I will try adding cocoa.
Great Blog,
