Well, I guess I'm the last person to find out how great Chia Seeds are, but hey better late than never right? And just in case you are also out of the loop here is some info on these wonderful tiny seeds:
Chia Seeds are an excellent source of omega-3 and fiber, when mixed with water they turn into a gel like substance and become soft, I like to use them for thickening up my smoothies. You don't have to rinse them first, you can add them directly to salads, energy bars, cereals, make a tapioca like pudding, or even use as an egg replacer! I found mine at a co-op, you can also find them at health food stores or online.
