I just bought a small box of Chia seeds to try in my morning smoothie in place of flax seed. Has anyone tried them? I'm not looking for a miracle food, just wanted to try something different. I've read great things about these seeds and then of course horror stories. Just wanted any advice and opinions from real people!

Be careful with the chia seeds as in a discussion on this very foodstuft too much in the beginning has, shall we say "a laxitive effect". Chia has a lot of fiber and therefore will cause the "hershey squirts" if you get too much.

You can read a couple of discussions from yesteryear where this is discussed One of them here ~ and another here ~

Now that I have reread much of both discussions I have gotten the urge to use chia in my daily meal plan as well. It might solve a couple of problems I am having.

Pray this has been helpful for you as well
