Home of the Food Bowl Solution!

It isn't wise to live without certain basic necessities on hand that can keep you fed for extended periods of time, in the event that food ever comes into short supply for you. This can easily happen through unemployment, failing world and national markets, and even from crop failures--such as those that have occurred recently in the U.S. and in several other parts of the world. One of the greatest additions to your food storage is the chia seed. Consider the following benefits provided by the chia seed and determine if you would like to participate in our annual bulk order, that will feature the chia seed, as well as some high-quality food products from Italy (pasta, tomatoes, olive oil, etc.)

 

Take a Look At the Chia Seed

Used as a staple by Indians of the southwest and Mexico, this seed was heralded as a running food that could be carried in small, wet leather pouches at the side of Indians who had to run long distances. It has been used as a high-energy food dating clear back to the Aztecs. Tradition states that these seeds were an important staple that was used by Aztec warriors during their many conquests. Runners or warriors could sustain themselves entirely with this seed during 24-hour forced marches or while Indian runners made the long journey from the Colorado river to the California coast to trade their goods. Lightweight and highly nutritious chia seeds were all they carried with them for nourishment, even when traveling long distances. Consider the following nutritional data as you seek to understand why this extraordinary qualities of this exceptional food source. In addition to its uses as a food, because of its exceptional absorption properties chia seeds were also used as a poultice for wounds and injuries that could be easily packed into a wound to prevent infection and to promote healing.

Other Characteristics and Information

The chia seed has a nice, light, nutty taste; it is odorless and easy to add to any recipe because it takes on the flavors of whatever it is added to. It is also an ideal fiber source because of its unusual capacity to absorb and is considered to have better fiber properties than flaxseeds and wheat bran. It can be used as a thickener in many applications and can even take the place of eggs as a binder. Chia seeds retain their high nutritional value during the bread-making process and can be used as an exceptional addition to breads, one that is far superior to flax and other seeds. It completely replaces the need for oil in the bread. Also, for on-the-go people who still value convenience and speed in food preparation, the chia seed will absorb 9 times its weight in water or other liquids in as few as 10 minutes. Imagine adding it to any of our healthful dressings. Of all seeds I've ever used, this is without a doubt my favorite all-around seed. From its light and wonderful flavor and nutritional properties, to its ability to blend into any dish, it is a valuable food storage item that you will quickly learn to use and value on a daily basis. Along with wheat and water, there doesn't exist a more basic and sound product to add to your storage.

Hi, I'm excited about the Chia Seed order, I have been using them for about 5 months now and I love the thought of being able to get in on the bulk order. MaureenK
I would like to order chia seeds and I may be interested in ordering tomatoes, pasta and olive oil.

Roughly, how much will need to be ordered per individual so I can budget this in, if possible.

Thanks!

I'm still receiving bids from world suppliers. I won't know until those bids are complete in perhaps another week.

I would love to be included in this. I need so chia seed, pasta and olives. I do need a price, since we are a little tight right now with finances.  Thanks  Emma

I'm a customer for this!!  Thanks.  Kisi

 

Elizabeth, I just read somewhere else that 35 lbs. of chia seeds will provide the "recommended" 2 Tbsp/day for 2 people for a year.  I don't know if that recommendation is a true amount or not.

Hi.  I think I received an email from you a week or so ago, but I can't find it in my inbox, so this is the only way I can figure out how to contact you.  I sent you an addressed envelope a couple weeks ago via greensmoothiegirl's instructions for a sourdough starter.  I see the check was cashed, and you did send me an email, I think (which is how I knew who it was I'd send it to, since I just had an address before), but I haven't received the starter, yet.  How long does it take?

 

Thank you

You forgot to put the stamp on the self-addressed, stamped envelope; Colleen said she is going to go to the post office tomorrow to send yours and to take care of some other similar issues. Jim
oh, whoops.  sorry and thanks.
Hi! I would like to order the Chia seeds in bulk. Please let me know wkere to sign up. Thank you
