Chia seeds

Do any of you eat these and if so how?
I put them in my fruit smoothies.
I have had these in smoothies. I have also had them where you put a 1/2 cup of seeds in a big cup of water with lime and sugar in it. You let the seeds sit until they get the gel around them (about 20 min.), then drink. It has a funny texture to it, but I kind of like it.

My staples: Mane n Tail (cowash), Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine (leave in condish), Grapeseed oil or shea butter (sealing), Organic Root Stimulator Elasticitea (leave-in condish & light hold)

-Smoothies
-Chocolate Chia pudding
-Chia eggs (if you want to make something vegan)
-Overnight oatmeal
-Chili (to thicken, if you'd like)

People also use them as energy gel, like for marathons and such. Chia seeds act like flaxseeds in that they're good binders for cooking (chia seed hair gel anyone???)

I love these! You can eat them pretty much any way you want. They are small and tasteless with lots of crunch factor. So far I add them to salads, oatmeal and yogurt. A friend of mine drinks them in her water. You can add them to veggie or fruit smoothies as well. People even bake with them. The sky's the limit.

"The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen." --- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
I don't like them when the get all jelly-like. I eat them crunchy as a topping in yogurt, ice cream or other sweet things.
hello.world.
I just put them on top of whatever I'm eating... Just a little spoonful
my step mom bought some this week - $10 for a small bag that you can hold in the palm of your hand.... I said "wow" .... are chia seeds worth the high price??

On my muesli every morning
An Australian company is making some kind of pudding with chia seeds now; it's kind of weird, but good.

I thicken things with it - I made a chia seed gravy for shepherd's pie recently.

My daughter likes smoothies, so I usually take a jar, put some chia seeds in with almond milk and shake. The next morning I use that to blend with her fruit and veggies.

I plan to try it as a binder in meatballs instead of egg.
