Food for thought: Chia seeds

Okay, friends, I've got a food question and I need your help.  For the past year or so, chia seeds have been everywhere.  I don't know if you're heard, but they're a super food!!!!!!!!!!!

Ha!  But really, from what I've read, they are chock full of good stuff.  People suggest adding them to smoothies, oatmeal, soups, baked goods, salads, and even meatballs.

Have you tried chia seeds or cooked with them?  I'd love to hear what you think before I venture out and buy some for myself.  Thanks! :)


  1. Yes, I have tried them and use them. Since they are high in fiber they help add to the feeling of fullness. They are sort of tasteless so they do not interfere with anything I have cooked or used it in.

    My only complaint is they swell up & sometimes get stuck on one of my teeth. One recommendation I have not tried yet is allowing them to soak first, then adding then to things. Maybe this will help with sticking to teeth.

    1. Thanks for the tip, Tricia! I'm thinking of trying them in overnight oats and smoothies, first.
