Both superfoods for me, I have the chia but yet to try them.  Someone said grind them up and put them on veggies or salad or something.  I have to get enough courage to try them.

JJ, be sure to try chia seeds.. tasteless little beauties, absolutely jam packed with anti inflammatory omega 3s, providing 1000mg per 5g teaspoon.

When you get your courage up try a drink they serve in Mexico city called Chia Freska. Put a table spoon of seeds in a glass of cold water stir occasionally for maybe 10 minutes, as they will form a thick jell on the outside of the seed. Add some lemon or lime juice, and some sugar, (I use stevia) and ice. Stir, garnish with a mint leave and voila. Or search it up online. You can also presoak the seeds and store them in the refrigerator for a week.

Chia seeds are a neutral and hemp seeds are a diamond on my Swami.  I use hemp milk now and it's great!!

Niagreen, where do you get your chia seeds from in the UK?  I haven't been able to find them.

Thanks

Andy, do you have a Planet Organic near you? http://www.planetorganic.com/

they have branches dotted around London

thats the only place I can buy them by going to the shop, every other healthfood shop thinks I'm bonkers when I ask for them

I think online is quite good, and cheaper! red23 and raw living - (I have ordered from the former)

http://www.rawliving.eu/chia-seeds-1kg.html


oh wow, a google search just came up with 'Chia Bia' from Holland and Barrett -

http://www.hollandandbarrett.com/pages/product.asp?bid=626

(the buy one get one half price offer ends on the 14th.   )

hope that helps

I love to make chia gel. I keep it in my fridge. Then use it later as an addition to salads, smoothies or mixed in pineapple juice.

Where do you find help milk that's ok to use? Hemp milk is easy to find here but the ingredients always have avoids on the label like safflower oil & carrageenan. Argh!

I make my own sometimes, but otherwise I use this one:

I'm only not sure about the sucrose ester (doesn't state the origin).  Anyway, it's the best milk alternative I've found off the shelf so far.

Thanks for the ideas on the chia seeds and encouragement.  Does it have protein in it too?  I'll have to look at the package.

Wow, it has a ton of omega 3's in one tablespoon.  That's impressive.  I do so well on nuts, I should really try these because I'm pretty sure the omega 3's would really help me.  Heck, maybe they would help kill some of the bad guys in the gut.  I hear some seeds do that.

I started eating Hemp and Chia recently and I've been feeling great!  I use Nutiva product.  They've got a ton of information on their website.  http://www.nutiva.com
