Black Chia, organically grown non-GMO 1 lb bag
Here comes a superfood! Chia seeds are remarkable for their high nutritional levels and energy-enhancing effect on the body. If you could take just one cup of food for a few days, choose chia. The food value per volume is simply astounding! You don't need much. Chia seeds have a very mild taste, making it easy to add to foods. The seeds can be used to replace less-healthy fat in just about any recipe. You can use them uncooked in salad dressings, spreads, fruit shakes, ice cream, and just about anything you want. You can also add them to cookies, cakes, muffins, and other baked goods. Chia seeds lead to weight loss—they are so filling that you will eat less of other foods. In addition, they bulk up and cleanse your body. Chia seed is eaten raw, ground into flour for baking, soaked in water or juice to yield "chia fresca" to thicken puddings and sauces, and is used to produce sprouts for salads, sandwiches and omelets, much like alfalfa sprouts. Take a tablespoon and put it in your water bottle, shake and drink—it will keep you well hydrated on a hike. I put it in my water glass every morning. Doesn't taste. Non-GMO. Organically grown.
