    Miracle food, I dunno about that. They are actually quite fatty and full of calories.

    For me they are.
    • They make brilliant crispy chips when dehydrated only with water and a bit of undemineralized salt, doing away with the need for expensive organic tortilla chips.
    • I can use them instead of flax seeds (which I loathe) to create wonderful flat breads and cookies, doing away with the need for expensive Ezekiel bread.
    • I can use them to make wonderful vanilla or chocolate pudding, without the dairy, or the starch...
    • I have started growing my own microgreens from chia (among other seeds...), doing away with the need to purchase expensive organic greens.
    • And we love the texture they give to kombucha.
    They're pretty miraculous to me. :)
    At the moment, chia seeds and sprouted buckwheat are my most revered foods.

    I want to love the chia, I mean I do. I am just hesitant to use them as prolifically on and in things as I thought I would once I read how much fat and calories they contain. But yes, the benefits are huge!

    Love iceberg -- big quartered hunks with a creamy garlic dressing topped with savory bits...or just the classic with roquefort dressing, bacon & diced tomatoes. Deserves more respect than it gets these days, IMO. :)

    Agreed. While I also like other sorts, I still really enjoy iceberg. Also good on sammiches.

    It's so refreshing...very cooling...great texture. Loathe the pre-shredded commercial stuff, but great in one's own kitchen. :)
