I started using organic chia seeds(1 tbs) a day.I put them in a 1/2 cup of cottage cheese for breakfast or in oatmeal. I have also used them in egg salad,and a regular lettuce salad.I love the little bit of crunch that they give.BUT…I was just wondering if they are a good thing for a diabetic? I don't notice any spikes when I use them.For me I need to feel full so I don't stray and eat something that I shouldn't.and they seem to fit the bill.Per 1 tbs it has 5g fiber,3g protein,2.5g omega 3,3g total fat and 5g carbs.
I am a newbie so any input would be greatly appreciated~ have a wonderful day!
