I started letting the chia sit in water and squeezing in a lemon and sugar, like a chia fresca. But figured that was no longer aloud cause of the sugar. I guess u coukd use splenda or stevia but i dont like those artificial sweeteners. I sometimes put chia seed in almond vanilla milk add a tsp peanut butter and coco powder after it has sat in the fridge for a while. It's like ice cream to me yum. Or if baking I substitute butter for chia by adding a tbs to water. Example 1/4 cup water for 1/4 butter. Now I just add 2 table spoons to a cup of water after it sits for a while I add chlorophyll I now think it is so good. The in Increases fiber I believe has helped with my weight loss. I know I have heard of making your own protien bars with it, but have yet to tried.
I am going to look into hemp hearts.
