I'd been buying black chia seed at the local Kroger's, but after trying this, well, let's just say the grocery is a backup.This is a great product, partly because it's so much cheaper than the grocery store.I'll know more about the quality, after finishing the bag, but I'm already impressed, since I haven't seen the first bit of none-product contamination in this sample.
Going strong. How do I use this again? I usually add it to my wine and it seems to keep me full longer moreso all day so I would say it is worming. made sure it arrived in pristine condition!
I started getting into chia seeds about a month ago due to boost of energy. I also was working out several times per week at high intensity, which left my muscles sore (GOOD sore, but still sore) for days afterward. Chia seeds have lots of protein in them, I heard, so I started mixing them into my water that I bring to the gym.They are very light seeds, very small, and have a very slight nutty flavor- almost unnoticeable flavor. If you wait 15 minutes, the chia seeds absorb the water and become a jelly consistency. Sort of like the "skin" on the top of pudding when cooked on the stove. A little bit chewy. They remain pretty small, though, so it's still easy to drink. I put 3 tbsp of chia seeds into my 32 oz of water, and I find it fun to drink. When I was doing frappuccinos, for example, I would do the java chip versus the plain coffee frap- cuz I liked having the texture in the drink to chew. Are you a pulp or no-pulp orange juice drinker? This is sort of like that.Well, despite doing lots of cardio and exercise, while eating healthfully, my cholesterol is raised and no longer benefiting from my current lifestyle. I've only been drinking chia seeds for about a month (and it's been TWO months since I got my last blood labs) and I am excited to see if the addition of chia seeds (as well as flax seeds) have improved my cholesterol panel.In the least, I feel more energy, my muscles ache less after and during workouts, since adding chia seeds. And this package is much more affordable than the grocery store. - and I thank you for that because sometimes eating healthfully can be expensive. I'm paying about $1 per oz at the grocery store. Here, it's about 65 cents per oz. Deal.
Got them based on my dietician’s orders. Now it is a staple for me every morning. I soak a teaspoon of chia seeds in a cup of water. They grow several times their size. The next morning down the hatch.
Great whole chia seeds! I use them in my protein shakes and they're perfect. You may also like to grind them up first in a coffee grinder if you want them as a fine powder.
