People are always giving bags of them to me and trying to get me on the chia band wagon-- They are ok and good with yogurt or mixed with almond butter & raisins etc. but I would never buy them. Generally the cost is high since they are network marketed. once did them for 3 weeks in a row since I had some other problems and was going through a number of blood tests so I could check nutrition levels before and after -- No change at all from the chia.. I did get my grand daughter a chia pet though...

I've been eating them for about two months. I have found that they help keep me 'regular'. They have
the benefits of psyllium without the harshness. I heard about them from a lady who has colon cancer and has had a good portion of her bowel removed. She was unable to have regular bowel movements until she started taking chia seeds on a daily basis (2 tbls. of chia soaked in a cup of water overnight). She eats the gel every morning.

I have also found that the gel is a great egg replacer when baking. I make a 'chocolate macaroon' cookie
using the chia gel instead of meringue. Also I made teff pancakes using the chia gel instead of eggs and they are great! Anything I bake is gluten/dairy/soy/egg free so can be a bit of a challenge.

I love Chia seeds. The only problem is they get really stuck in your teeth. Nice crunchy little treat added to yogurt:)

Gluten free is not so bad! If you are new, hang it there, it gets easier!
