I do have to re-stir them once or twice to avoid the sticking, or put in a blender cup (with a whisk ball) when mixing with juice.

I haven't tried to soak them overnight Don't they stick together?? I soak them for about 15 min. before adding them to my Greens Drink. Or my protein drink.

I enjoy them, too! For me, they digest better if I soak overnight in a little bit of water before adding to cherry juice.

Soak them first! They become more like a tapioca with a tiny little crunch! Love them!

I like chewing them just as they are. They do take a little getting used to but then you like them,

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Chia: Not Just For Planters

Perhaps best known as the source of "fur" on novelty planters called Chia Pets, chia is the highly nutritious seed of a desert plant called Salvia hispanica. An important part of the diet of ancient Aztecs and Mayans, chia seed is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, as well as vital minerals including calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. It has a nutty flavor - sprinkle seeds whole or ground on cereal, in yogurt or on salads, or grind and mix them with flour when baking. Chia is undergoing a well-deserved renaissance, and is widely available in online and innatural food stores. Seek out organic versions and experiment you'll likely find it a tasty addition to your diet!
