silly question I know - how do you eat chia seeds - I gather either add to bread or soak - how long for though?

Once you've soaked the chia seeds it becomes a liquid like mixture and you can keep it like that for about a week and add to cereal, yoghurts etc whatever you want to add it to, or sprinkle them dry onto things or into a half glass of water with lime - some people do the latter before going out for a long run. I've also made flapjack style things and put them in, but some purists will think it's wrong to heat chia seeds (not sure about that one).

There is a ratio for water to chia seeds off the top of my head can't remember what it is though - something like 5-1 and just keep stirring for a couple of mins or the seeds tend to stick together and go all gloopy! Yuk........There is info on the website on my previous post - good info or online has stuff as well. Good luck!

Hello, I have 1-2 tablespoons a day of chia seeds which I buy from Amazon and I feel they give me more energy for running. That may or may not be psychological of course but they work for me. I don't bother with presoaking. I either mix the seeds in with the oats when making porrige before adding milk, or I stir them into Muller Light cherry yogurt, which I then eat quickly.  I hope this helps
