February 28, 2014Reviewer: ALYSSA in California* This brand is very good quality. In general, chia seeds are very powerful and nutritious. I use about 2tb a day. I put 1tsp in my oats and it bulks it up since chia holds on to a a lot of water. I put 1/2tb in my shakes, I even add it to baked goods. It's really an easy to get in more fiber and omegas. I love this stuff.This review is specific to Chia Seed, Organic, Black
May 17, 2013Reviewer: Gail in New Mexico* I put this in my vitamin drink in the morning, let it sit for a few minutes, and then drink it down. I can't tell it's in the drink because I also add kefir to the water, so it's a fairly thick shake. I know it's very nutritious. I'm wondering if it could be added to pudding, after soaking, and be a tapioca pudding substitute--something I plan to try.
May 18, 2012Reviewer: Evelyn in North Carolina* Great purchase and will be adding it to all future orders.
I'm finding this a very easy way to add more fiber and Omegas into my low carb lifestyle. I like both the crunchy texture and the softer state if you let it "soak" in a liquid for a while.
I add it to my Greek yogurt and in soups as a quick and easy fiber boost to my snacks and meals.
2 of 2 people found the following review helpfulJuly 23, 2011Reviewer: Adina in Pennsylvania* This is an unbelievable power/energy source! I had read about the powers of chia and decided to give it a go - and now it's an absolute staple in my dry goods cabinet. I just mix 1 Tbsp with cold water and squeeze fresh lemon or lime juice into it, shake it up, and use it to power through workouts and long drives (replaced the Diet Coke!). It also makes you feel full, so I drink it before I go to a party where there might be tempting foods....And it's higher in Omega 3's than most food sources! Try it!
