Chia Seeds?

forzagto | Dec 30, 2009 11:59 AM

I just ordered a package of chia seeds because they sounded interesting and have some strong health benefits. I am looking for ideas on how to use them. I've read about making a chia seed gel, if you mix them with water the expand sort of like tapioca? Has anyone made the gel, how does it taste, what is the process and then what do you use it for.
I intend to use them somewhat like flax seeds- mix in with oatmeal, cottage cheese and fruit, etc. does anyone else eat them this way or other ideas/suggestions?
