chia seeds

Anyone try these yet?

I'm in love! Seriously I wish I had gotten more.

Anyone not want theirs LOL!

They gel up when you put them in water, awesome in tea too, I put them also in hot cocoa, but not too hot of water. I drink through it a straw. Weird but cool texture.

Try them in smoothies and in homemade puddings. I gel them up and put them in my water before I go to the gym.

I'm eating some right now... I am in love too! . I only got 2 when I first went and had no idea what they were. ( I don't wanna be a "shelf clearer" ). But when I got home and realized how awesome they were I was wishing I had gotten more. Well, after talking to someone else about it and realizing it was literally only minutes til the store was closing and the deal would be over... I went back and got the last 3. So far I've eaten em right out of the jar, I've made the gel thing that people seem to like (which is what I'm eating right now) and I put some on my PB&J this afternoon , . Good stuff!

Oh and also they can be used as refills for Chia Pets lmao

I got three jars. I was so happy to see this deal, because they are not cheap!! I have used them in the past. They have lots of health properties and are high in fiber and omegas. It doesn't say this on the bottle, but I grind mine up, I think the nutrients are more easily released that way. I like them in oatmeal, smoothies, and yogurt, and I also use some (just a little) when I'm baking.

My go-to breakfast in the winter:

oatmeal
almond milk
raisins
molasses
cinnamon
chia

Sweet, nutty, and satisfying!!

I brought one jar home on Thanksgiving and my husband was really excited about it so we went and got 6 more (3 stores) over the next two days. No shelf clearing was involved until the last day right before closing. Then I cleared the shelf save for one in case someone was willing to pay $19.99 the next day for it!

Awesome - I was able to get 3 bottles - now I'm anxious to try them. Thanks for the positive rating on them :-)

I let them gel up in the water I add to my shakeology (basically a smoothie protein shake), then make the shake in the blender. I have texture issues.....you couldn't pay me enough to drink them just gelled in liquid But they got soft enough and ground nicely for the smoothie

I got 8 jars and I wish I would have gotten more! I'll definitely be adding them to my oatmeal too.

Just a heads up for those trying these.

They have a LOT of fiber in them...So...yeah

Great for you but don't over do it KWIM

I'm so sad now I thought getting 3 was alot, there were two left on the shelf. Oh well, 3 is like a 3-6 month supply Hopefully they'll do another sale like this sometime then

lmao, you don't want to over do it at first for sure. Like Flaxseed , you will be very regular . Kind of have to ease them into your diet to avoid a system shock !!

I wish I could've gotten more (I think I got bottles). I didn't know what they were. First, I thought of Chai (tea), then Chia pets like PP mentioned, ! I'll try it when I go home today!

Chia seeds are big in the raw vegan world. Google some recipes, you'll hit quite a few! Wish I would have gotten more.
