Chia seed is what my Health Food Store is promoting because it is high in fiber.  Does anyone know if it's a Benefit for O's?

Beneficial for Hunters, SuperBeneficial for gatherers, unrated for Type O.  I like it, and I've included it in the rotation for my breakfast mix.

I was impressed with the flavor... or lack of it as well.  Kinda of reminds me of flax seed or ground flax.  looks like poppy sead or large grounds of pepper.

should be just the opposite, but as with many fiber foods, they can jam up inside for whatever reasons...most likely not enough hydration, not only after you take it , but before.
My friend, who is very tiny, said her doc told her not to overdo the fiber as she is very small and he could not see the point of her eating tons of fiber.
I am in favor of fiber, just drink lots of liquids.

Lots of liquid!  

It absorbs liquid, so you either need to soak it before using it, or include plenty of liquid along with it.  Used that way, it should get things moving in a great way.

What do others do with the seeds.....soak in water whole or do you grind then soak before use?.

if I add them to my smoothie they get pretty ground up in the process......if I simply sprinkle them on my fruit paneer concoction, they are nice and crunchy, and I enjoy them just as well, whole.....depends what you like.

is paneer like farmer's cheese? I just tried some russian style farmer's cheese and loved it! Ate it on a plate of sliced tomatoes....mmm. with a dab of mayo.
Oh, yeah, chia seeds. they taste good, too. they could be used as a spice....

mine is a bit less compact.....and that s about all the dairy I have had for now......am not quite ready to venture into other grounds just yet!

knowing Gruyere is lurking in my horizon keeps me happy!

well, Lola, I think you are doing the right thing, and I would do it too if I find that I can digest the paneer. It worries me that it is from cow milk.....
of course, farmer's cheese is a diamond food too.....(cow, too)

my dilemma is not finding any of the diamond dairy choices, free of whatever is added in the processing....

I simply plunged into the cow dairy paneer homemade process, thanks to the recipe someone kindly shared, and immediately knew I could do it, without much complication and difficult processing techniques.

I m a simple kind of person, who settles for practicality!
and pure diamonds!
