Miracle food, I dunno about that. They are actually quite fatty and full of calories.
packed with anti oxidants esp for a seed
regulate/reduce glycemic swing
kinda a minor miracle at least
if you dont eat a bale of em!!
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.
spinach, feta, and tomato quiche
small bit of pasta, but mostly broccoli
chicken tenders and mushrooms
chicken salad (literally chicken and iceberg)
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!
use instead of flax besides who eats that anyway bllechh
i can barely call iceberg a food!!( its one step above cardboard in my book, but hey its catabolic) romaine spring mix anything else for me!!
LOVE me some strawberries tho
that was breakfast today!!
egg sammich coffee
egg sammich, tiny bit of broccoli pasta salad, corn, unsweet tea
quiche, chicken salad, more coffee...possibly some wine later...
Egg and cheese panini.
Mini steak tacos and red wine
hummus and carrots
some thin mints
This. I really just don't understand the TJ's love.
Except for their masala burgers. Love those.
mmmmm thiiinn mminnnntss * best homer simpson voice*
wish they made ya thin LOL
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.
that is the ONLY ways that celluloid is tolerable...........oh IMO
Agreed. While I also like other sorts, I still really enjoy iceberg. Also good on sammiches.
A great shredded to make chopped salads with various ingredients....lovely texture.
it adds crunch to a BLT .. if no added taste LOL
It's so refreshing...very cooling...great texture. Loathe the pre-shredded commercial stuff, but great in one's own kitchen.
