Chia also cures baldness.
So Eddie’s a chia head now?
Another fad sprouts on the internet.
I equate chia seeds with okra – can’t get past the slimy part.
So do we wait for him to turn into a chia pet?
Bruno Zeigerts – reminds me of my father-in-law, a good ol’ Texas boy with a huge backyard barbeque, who used to say that he refused to eat “rabbit food”. He died rather messily from stomach cancer before he was 50.
Edward is eating chia pets?! The horror, the horror! :-)
Quinoa and chia are not a fad. Both are highly nutritious foods and taste good if you know how to use them. This comic strip is so far behind the food trends.
How to make chia palatable: Buy your favorite plain yogurt.Dump in a cup of chia seeds and your favorite fruit.Wait at least 24 hours. The yogurt will be a delicious, thick, sweet fruity tapioca pudding and you can tell any dietary killjoys about all the fabulous Omega 3 you are getting from it. That should shut them up.
Of course, if you hate tapioca, skip it. I do not recommend using ground chia seeds. Think – sawdust. GACK!
My dad is a foodie and he was wolfing down pounds of quinoa, then recently started on chia just like Pab says. It’s not about nutrition, and there is no such thing as a “superfood”. It is just easily influenced and marketed-to consumers looking for an answer other than… reasonable diet and exercise.
