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.

Are these chia seeds organic?
There is no organic claim associated with this seed. They are clean and very high-quality chia seeds.

I suspect they are as high a quality as any seed that is "labeled" organic, which label no longer guarantees that what is in the package is truly organic. The senator who originated organic legislation several years ago is himself now decrying the label as meaningless because of what has actually happened to the label after lobbying powers and food super powers have had their turn at watering the label down to its present nearly meaningless state.

I know you already did to Chia seed buy.  Do you know how I can get some.  Thank you

We are going to send out an order on Monday. Jim

I've been eating chia seeds for the past few months now. But I'm not sure if I'm eating them in the most healthful way. It seems no matter how much I eat, or how I prepare them, I always end up feeling constipated with painful stomach cramps. Is this normal and should I keep eating them for my body to adjust? Has any one had this problem and knows how to solve it? I thought chia has a laxative effect, not the other way around! 

Hi Rayna,  Green smoothies stop me up unless I eat lots of greens and veggies and drink lots of water.  So I'm wondering if you're eating lots of fresh greens as wells as lots of veggies, legumes, and whole grains?  Does your body do well with whole grains and with raw veggies, or do you have trouble digesting raw veggies and whole grains? 

I am not sure how much I need or if there is a maximum amount I need to order.  I have 6 people in my family and my mom would like some.  I love Daniels Challenge.  Thank you,  Lisa 

Hi Kisi, I do eat lots of veggies. I don't eat much meat at all, mostly veggies. I bake my own ww bread and don't have any problems. I'm a little bit lactose intolerant but I avoid those foods pretty much. I would mix a couple tbls chia seeds into greek yogurt with a little agave and have that for breakfast. I loved how it filled me up but hated how it tied my stomach up in knots! My friend and my mom are having the same problems. We both don't know what's going on. Do you suggest I keep trying to eat it in smaller quantities? Does baking with it ease this problem somewhat?

Hi Rayna,  The only other thing I can think of is if you're not drinking enough water.  Chia seeds absorb something like 8 times their bulk in water, so if you're not drinking a lot, they could "bind things up".  How much water do you drink?  Are you drinking some with your breakfast?  If I were trying to make a salad dressing with chia seeds, I might add 2 Tbsp to a cup, and that would make it thick.  You might be creating a brick in your digestive tract by adding too much chia with too little liquid.  Try this:  make the exact same thing that you've been doing, but don't eat it for 15 minutes and then look at it.  How thick is the thing you've made after the chia seeds have a chance to gel up?  I'm interested to hear what you learn.

yeah I hardly 'hydrate' it before I eat it. I just pour it raw on salads and yogurts and smoothies. I don't think I'm drinking enough water as I'm eating it too. I'm going to try it and see. Thanks for you help! I'll let you know what I discover! Thanks again!

When I tried to open the "chia seed group buy" it came up blank.  Can you tell me what kind of chia seeds these are and more about it.  I live in the Uintah Basin and really would like to try these.  My e-mail is patty.hurley@yahoo.com

Thanks,

Patty

Should work fine if you have microsoft excel loaded on your computer. Try opening it from another computer. You can also go to the home page to the downloads and try downloading the chia seed group buy from there. These are the multi-colored chia seeds of exceptional quality.
