The more days that pass, the more days that chia seeds are taking the world by storm. And why they shouldn't they? On top of boasting 10 ounces of fiber per ounce of chia seeds, they are full of vitamins/nutrients like Magnesium, Calcium, Phosphorus and Protein. They're also high in antioxidants, which help guard the body from toxins. Unlike flax seeds, which need to be ground for someone to absorb their nutrients, chia seeds can remain whole. This makes their use in baking, cooking, eating, etc. endless!
Chia seeds, which are naturally gluten free, are commonly used as an egg replacement when baking. They're frequently used in puddings and smoothies, tossed on a salad or mixed into the dressing, added to granola bars or add to thicken a sauce. The list really could go on forever, but ain't nobody got time for that. Instead, I've rounded up ELEVEN paleo-friendly chia seed recipes that uses them in a different way each time. Pick one, pick four or go crazy and try them all!
