eating it now...it's tasty, albeit not a huge portion of food. it is basically like ramped up chia pudding. I topped it with 1/4 banana and a couple chopped up strawberries. It seems to be pretty satisfying.
They are pretty expensive, but mine last a LONG time. I just finished a 16 oz. canister that I bought last summer for around $16. I bought a 12 oz. package for $7 to replace it.
RE the Chia Goodness: It didn't keep me full very long. My usually soaked oats + chia seeds in the mornings keep me full until around 11 when we eat lunch. I finished my workout at 9:45 and I was STARVING. I think I might mix 2 T. of oats into it to give it more staying power.
I was curious as to whether the 2 TBSP serving was going to be satisfying enough to sustain you until lunchtime. Based on what you said, I don't think I'd bother to buy it. I'm pretty happy with my usual breakfast of soaked oats with fruit (and chia, when I remember to add them).
It gives me ideas on how to jazz up my oats, though, when I want something a little different.
It didn't look like much less than my normal breakfast after everything plumped up. It was really tasty. Had a bit of a ginger-y flavor that was really refreshing. I think I will add 1 T. of it to my normal soaked oats.
I have eaten chia seeds for over a year. An acupuncturist told me about them and said they help with inflammation? I soak a few tablespoons and add them to yogurt. I buy them in a large bag from my local healthfood store and they last a long time.
