    Did you soak them in water prior to eating them, or did you eat them dry?

      Don't eat them dry! lol
      Grind them, then let them soak in water for like 10 min so they're actually nutricous.

        Hello neighbor,

        Funny you should say that as I was looking up Chia and buckwheat etc. yesterday as it was in Holy Crap cereal that I wanted to try. I put the Holy Crap into a bowl and mixed in coconut milk, waited for a good 10 mins. Didn't have any obvious problems with it and I have loads of allergy issues.
        Started Primal June 2012 at 148.5lbs, and 5' 1", reached goal weight in 5 months.
        Lowest weight 93lbs - too thin. Now stable at around 100lbs much better weight for me at my age.
        Primal, minus eggs, dairy and a myriad of other allergens.

          I have a close friend who frequently hosts potlucks but has an egg allergy so ground chia is handy for baked stuff.

            there is a company which sells brewed chia tea, not just dumping chia inside a regular hot cup of tea.
            worth a try.

              That glutinous stuff from Chia seed is as polysaccharide... which, presumably, is a kind of carb that people cannot digest directly but some gut bacteria can. Sounds like yours had a feast.

              It might give you a clue about which other foods you should avoid for digestive peace and harmony.

                Just for fun, you can always read J. Stanton's article : “Eat Like A Predator, Not Like Prey”: The Paleo Diet In Six Easy Steps, A Motivational Guide - GNOLLS.ORG

                I like the way he presents things from a certain perspective
