How do you eat them?
1. You can drink chia seeds in a shake, tea, juice and even coffee (which I haven't tried yet).
2. Sprinkle them on a salad, in yogurt, on meat in soups or on veggie. You can use them like you would sesame seeds.
3. Soaked and then dried in a simple way to eat them to ensure you give a good dose each day. You can soak them in water for about 10 minutes. About 2 cups of water for 1/3 cup of seeds. Then eat a spoon of them a day.
