Hello - does anyone know if chia seeds are okay for Blood type O people and the 'hunter' type? just bought some seeds (grown in Western Australia), I think they were originally grown in Mexico. They are high in many nutrients incl omega 3. thanks.   aussielady5757   (Australia)

aussielady5757, here is a recipe I have for Chia Seed Milk:

4 T chia seed
2 T walnuts
2 T raw sesame tahini
1 T agave
dash vanilla
5 C water

(Substitute compliant ingredients if needed)

In a glass jar, soak seeds & walnuts overnite in 3 C water. Pour into blender jar, add 1 C water, blend at medium speed. With blender still running, add tahini, agave and vanilla, then add 1 more C water.

Chia milk is rich in EFA's & protein. Because of the soaking, it is also rich in enzymes. Because of the antioxidants, it will keep well in your frig ( one week )
(Last paragraph is poster's comments)

Just bought chia seed for the first time and have been adding them to my daily "superfoods" green smoothie.  Yummy

the chia milk sounds good. as a gatherer can't have tahini (seasame) butter. think almond butter would work?


nothing to do? who has that!?

Some people use almond butter instead of ground almonds for making almond milk.

For my smoothies, I grind the chia seeds in a little coffee/seed grinder before adding to the blender.  It makes the smoothies nicely thick and creamy.

Does anyone know how long Chia seeds last? I've had some in my pantry
for a bit of time now, and the company has not responded to my question.
I guess it wouldn't hurt to go out and get a fresh bag though.

most of my fruit this time of year is dried or frozen. the stuff at the store is mostly off limets or just plain gross looking. besides i like the mix of jelly and crunchy texturs.   insadintly they make a great sub for geleton for the O's who should not have geleton.

How do they differ from flax and hemp seeds




If you keep doing what you've always done, and you keep getting what you've aways got, perhaps it's time for a change...

Taste, flavor, texture . . it's like comparing apples to oranges.

Chia gels when it comes in contact with liquid, absorbing many times its' weight in water.  It is a gentle bulking food in the gut whereas flax can be irritating to some with IBS.  When it is ground, it's simply marvelous in smoothies.  Although many people, including Lola, use the seeds whole.  They are tiny, like poppy seeds.

The historic use of chia as a staple energy food is legendary.

For centuries, Native Indian Peoples in the Americas have used chia seed as a staple food. Aztec warriors subsisted on chia seeds during battles and hunting expeditions. Indians of the Southwest would eat as little as a teaspoon of chia seeds during a 24-hour march. Indians ran from the Colorado River to the Pacific Ocean to trade turquoise for shells, carrying only a pouch of chia seed for nourishment.
