A Matter of Perspective

When he's going to the store and asks if you need anything. You say you need some chia seeds. You tell him he can find Bob's Red Mill in the baking aisle, and you expect he'll bring home a small, 12 oz. bag.


 What he hears is chia seeds


and he brings home a 5 lb. tub.

I use a teaspoon or so of chia seeds when I make a smoothie. I sprinkle some on the Keto hamburger buns I make. I make strawberry jam (1 cup) Any other recipes for chia seeds? I may have to buy one of the chia pets to use up all these seeds.

  1. I laughed when I read this. But it's the thought that counts. He did get you something that was "chia" even though it wasn't all of the other words that you said to him. I think making chia pets is the way to handle this! :-)

  3. Nope, can't help you with the chia seed recipes but I can relate to the hubby hearing only a limited mount of what you asked for. Happy Monday. Already. Hugs-Erika

    3. The seeds are so tiny, I'm not sure it's worth the effort.

    4. I am searching for ideas-I like the pudding and jam making idea https://www.vitacost.com/blog/food-nutrition/nutrition/10-tasty-things-you-can-do-with-chia-seeds.html

      there is allot of information online-one said they grind them like flour-easier to digest as well-and then use as a thickener etc if you grind into a flour you can add to your baked goods, and since you have soooo many lol good way to use them possibly-good luck with being creative with them

    5. I did make the pudding. Was kind of meh, not quite what we think of as pudding. I did find a recipe for chia Fresca (water, lemon or lime juice, sweetener (i used agave) and chia seeds. Reminded me a little of bubble tea and wasn't bad.

    You may find this article of interest, because she (Michelle) too had a bulk buy of chia seeds then wondered what to do with them :)

  10. I saw your comment about the Twilight Zone. I loved that show. I don't recall that episode with the young Robert Redford (1962), but I'm sure I've seen it. (I saw them all.) If you like dark art, I had a whole series in 2018, with this couple in some of them, here:

  11. I'm still laughing, even though I'm late visiting. Reminds me of the time I was sick and Sally shopped for me. Bought the most expensive items from my list. I buy generic or cheap, she buys expensive and never on sale.
