I LOVE this chia book. It's written in a very friendly, conversational way, has great info/tips/recipes on chia...and more.

I have Wayne Coates first book on chia as well. It is more academic and research-oriented, but if you're looking for a fun, easy book on chia that gives nutritional information, outstanding recipes and so much more, please don't look any further than this one! Well worth your investment if you're a chia fanatic like me.

Highly, highly recommended.

If you are just learning about how to incorporate chia seeds into your life - this is a book worth reading.
If you know someone who could benefit from chia seeds, then this book is a tasteful gift.

The author has provided many good examples of how to enjoy chia and even how to clean out the glass after drinking your favorite chia infused beverage. It's no joke, chia seeds are a practical way to lose weight and keep your energy up throughout the day. I look forward to trying some of the skin treatments explained in the book and sharing my knowledge with friends and family. Keep up the great work Dr. Wayne Coates! I am sending a copy to my mom today too.

It's official: I love chia! This cookbook has opened my eyes to the beauty of this humble but mighty Aztec seed. For smoothies, shakes, muffins, salads, soups, stews, baking, or just energy-boosting `agua fresca' (chia and water plus lemon or lime), Chia: the Complete Guide to the Ultmate Superfood offers everything you never knew you didn't know about cooking with chia!

Actually, calling it a `cookbook' almost sells the book short. There are tons of chia recipes, but author Wayne Coates also provides a wealth of non-cooking information relevant and interesting to readers aware of the connections between lifestyle and health.

I'm thrilled to have Chia: the Complete Guide to the Ultimate Superfood on my bookshelf. It has opened my eyes to a new world of healthy cooking with chia, and I recommend it as a valuable addition to anyone's cookbook collection.

It's a nicely written book. Easy to read. It has lot's of answer & question formatted pages. In the first 16 pages or so it gives you a great overview of what Chia is and why you would bother eating it. You could read the whole book in a hour.

I realized Chia had healthy nutrients in it and went about everywhere getting opinions, ideas, and recipes.
I ended up buying Chia by Wayne Coats, PHD because he
is Professor Emeritus in the Office of Arid Land studies at the University of Arizona, and developed the system currently used to harvest and clean Chia seeds. He was the founder of the educational chia [...]
Having read the book I would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn about Chia. It also has many wonderful and interesting recipes in it.

Love the book and purchase was easy and fast. Excellent condition.

I have been inspired to include chia in my daily diet, and as a result I am consuming about 1/3 less each day, and its so easy. No strong hunger, no cravings, appetite control. What a great discovery!
