 I am a big fan of chia seeds so I was pretty stoke to get a bag of Nutrigold’s Organic Chia seeds for a review.  Now you may be thinking, “Ch-ch-ch-chia?”, but that is not the chia I am talking about.  Chia, also known as Salvia Hispanica, is a plant that is part of the mint family.  Chia seeds are full of protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, iron, antioxidants and Omega-3 fatty acids.  Can you believe all of that is packed into these tiny little seeds?  

Chia seeds can be consumed in many different ways.  They are crunchy and have a nutty flavor, so they go well with everything.  I like to sprinkle my organic chia seeds on my salads, yogurt and on my granola.  I put them in my lactation cookie dough as well!  You can soak chia seeds (one part seeds to nine parts water) for 30 minutes to create a chia gel which is great for use in drinks or cooking.  Try replacing 1/4 of your eggs or oil in a recipe with chia gel for extra nutrition without altering the taste or texture.

Have you seen those yummy chia seed juices at the grocery store?  They are weird the first time you try them, but they are SO good!  I’ve totally become addicted to them!  The problem is, those suckers are not cheap.  $3-4 dollars per bottle adds up quick, so why not make your own chia drinks?  

 I love that the Nutrigold Chia Seeds comes in a resealable bag with its own little scoop.  It keeps my seeds fresh and prevents me from having to hunt down my measuring spoons which are never where I last saw them.  One of the best things about chia seeds as they are tiny and easy to hide!  If you have picky kids, you can easily sprinkle chia seeds in/on their food and call it “magic dust” or “special seasoning” and they will gobble it up, not knowing the great health benefits!

  1. I have never tried Chia seeds. I would try them in a salad and maybe a smoothie for my daughter!

  2. I most often put chia seeds in my smoothies. Sometimes I’ll sneak them into other things. I’ve even put them in brownies before.

  3. I tried using them in homemade energy bars and it worked great! I’m excited to experiment and more and I’d love to try making pudding and adding chia seeds to smoothies.

  4. I would like to try making a pudding with chia seeds. I made homemade bars with chia seeds and they were delish.

  5. Yes! I add chia to our morning smoothies. I also make an “energy bite” with dates, chia, cocoa—we snack on them instead of candy.

  6. I have not yet tried chia seeds, but I’ve been meaning to. I might try adding them to my morning smoothie.

  7. I never tried chia seeds, but I heard they are very good for you. You think that chia pet thing on tv, it’s apparently the same thing. But on a salad that looks like the best and first place I would use these. I bet it would be good in a stir fry too!

  8. I have never tried Chia seeds, but I just got a new cookbook with healthy recipes and quite a few of them call for Chia seeds.

  9. I have never tried chia seeds but after trying to change my lifestyle to eat cleaner and reading how much of an advantage chia seeds give you, I am very interested in giving them a try!

  10. I have not yet tried chia seeds but would love to try them in my salads and yogurt. I am an avid gardener and would like to try growing them.

  11. I haven’t tried chia seeds yet but I would probably start with sprinkling them on a salad. They seem like they would be similar to adding nuts or dried fruit.
