I'm Eating Chia. Yup, Cha,cha,chia.

My sister who works at the Cleveland Clinic told me about Chia seeds. The Clinic sells these in their health food store. They are the same seeds as sold with the Chia Pet, but don't the seeds that come with the "pet", as they may not grown for purity.
They don't have any taste, just a little crunch.
Chia expands up to ten times its size and weight, and makes me feel full. It's also a source of Omega 3.
When I cook, I use them to thicken food that are little too thin. I put in my oatmeal, too.
HOPE I DON'T GET ALL GREEN AND FUZZY!
