Regardless of the astonishing nutritional values of Chia seeds, it also tastes very good. My girlfriend and I make a big pot of "steel cut" oatmeal at night (the quick way is throw a cup of oats in 4 cups of boiling water and just let it sit overnight), put in a good helping of Chia seeds, and the next morning you have a wonderful breakfast that could last all week depending on how many people are eating it. Feel free to add a little cinnamon, peanut butter, fruit, or your own oatmeal favorite additions.
There are many other recipes for eating Chia, but oatmeal is my personal favorite.Read more ›
Someone reviewed that they wish they'd known these weren't seeds, they must have just received the wrong item. I purchased these and both bags were filled with whole blackish chia seeds. Just what I ordered, and at an amazing price.
Love the zip loc strip on the bag.
