Chia Seed The Nutritionally Dense Food of the Future
Cooking With Chia
In the last many
months I have discussed the features and benefits of
Chia seed which is a splendid super food in many ways. Chia is a very
complete food, providing the body with protein, omega fatty acids,
fiber and plenty of vitamins and minerals.
Today I would like to make some suggestions on how to add and apply
Chia to our daily cooking routines. 10 Simple Chia Recipes
As I mentioned in week one, when adding water to Chia seed, the seed
will grow to 9 times its weight and take a gel like form. Many recipes
with Chia call for the gel process. You can find that recipe in last
month’s blog recipe section called Chia Gel.
According to Marion Gray from Natural Remi-Teas, “You get
great benefit in using Chia in its gel form; however there is no
problem using it dry, by adding to our food and shakes. It still bangs
out a great punch of nutrition.”
Here are some foods
to which you can add Chia:
Oatmeal and hot grains
Breads for baking
Sauces and Salad dressings
Sprinkle on your salads and veggies
Soups and stews
Jams and jellies
Pancake and Waffle batters
Fruit and Vegetable Juice
The list goes on when using Chia in our diet. I would suggest you try
to have it added to your diet in some way. Two or three tablespoons a
day would be a good start.
I would, lastly, suggest to search the internet for some interesting
recipes. In my upcoming book Chia Seeds A 20 Year Commitment An
Interview with William Anderson, I have an easy recipe section that is
worth checking out. The book will be available in July 2009.

I was diagnosed with it in 1985. There are millions of people who have
