Chia Seeds

Post by perennialpam on Thu Nov 30, 2017 9:37 am

Are they considered paleo?

I have a bag of Bob's Red Mill.
Serving:
2 tbsps are 130 calories
8 g fat
10g carbs
6g protein
Contain 4710mg of Omega fatty acids.

Anyone have a recipe?

I have had this bag for some time and veered away from paleo over the years.

What are your thoughts on it?

I'll put them in hot pepper brine (habanero mainly) and mix em into salads.
I wouldn't cook them, but soak and eat raw on other things or by itself is awesome.
I also eat flax seeds as a snack. But I am weird.

A recipe I like from Mark's Keto book is his Chia Pudding.

I do it in a high speed blendtec, but you can just mix.

1/4 c chia seeds
1 c. coconut milk (the canned kind)
1/4 tsp vanilla
Flavoring - he uses 1 tsp Chai spice, I've subbed in Pumpkin spice, or cocoa
If I remember correctly he calls for a little Stevia. I can't use stevia and since I buried my sweet tooth mostly, I don't add any sweetener, but to each is own.

Blend for about 30 sec. Put into 2 containers, fridge overnight or for a few hours and enjoy

Pinterest has a bunch of recipes for this as well.

I think Chia is pretty darn paleo. It's very nutritious and is awesome in smoothies.

I'm basically snacking on flax by the lb. Chia, I still have to put it in something. Flax, I eat as is right out of the bottle, 1 seed @ a time, breaking its hull and chewing it up thorougly. Flax is very very estrogenic, however, I have a bigger belly for my body than legs. As in levi's 501's that fit my waist are loose in the thigh. So Flax away is the motto.
