    I'm old enough to remember chia as the 'living sculptures' or however they marketed the K-tel promo back in the 70's. Just seems beyond weird that chia seeds are the Next Big Thing for healthful consumption....

    I've yet to see the appeal of chia seeds. I googled for chia recipes and all I saw were disgusting looking gels with fruit thrown on top from raw vegan forums.

    is there actually anything tasty you can make with the stuff?

    Yes. I've had quite a bit of really delicious chia dishes, like this one Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding Parfait

    And I also love flax. So good for baking...but I'll stop if it's unhealthful.

    I am another one that can't have flax or chia seeds. Major tummy troubles at the most inconvenient times. I stay far away now LOL

    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.
    chiateastore.com
    worth a try.
