Chia Seed Recipes

Recipes Using Chia Seeds
Chia Seeds are a pantry staple here. They are high in omega-3, fiber, and are a great source of potassium, calcium, iron, and phosphorus. They are also great for weight loss as they create a gel when added to liquid, allowing you to feel fuller without an increase in calories. They also help stabilize blood sugar when eaten with a meal, by slowing the conversion of starch to sugar. Plus, they have almost no flavor & absorb the flavors around them so they are extremely versatile.

We have been adding them to our diet without any particular recipes so far, but I was looking for other ways to utilize them.  Besides the recipes below (and hundreds of others), there are a few simple ways to make Chia seeds part of your daily menu.  Adding a spooning to your oatmeal or sprinkling them over a salad or into yogurt are great ways to get started.  Enjoy baking?  You can substitute 1 Tbsp Chia seeds and 3 Tbsp water for one large egg when baking or you can allow the seeds to sit in water to form the gel and use it instead of half the butter/oil a recipe calls for.

Chia seeds are available at some major grocery chains and health food stores. You can also order them from Vitacost and Amazon carries the white and black.
