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.

I would like to be added in your bulk program.  I am new to your website so I am not sure if it is too late. thanks

I live in Texas. Is there any way to get the order here or a distribution site here.  If so I saw where on order form it has to be placed by saturday tommorw.  I was wondering if I can get it here then I can overnight a check. thanks

Tanya,

 

In order to have the chia seed delivered to any location, there must be 20 or more bags (50lbs each) ordered from that location. We can then combine that areas order with others to meet the minimum order from the company. The minimum is 44 bags. They will ship to any location that has 20 bags ordered as long as the whole order meets their minimum. We pay for the order the day we place it with the company. Everything must be paid in advance as I am not able to cover the cost for 44 bags myself and then hope that the bags will sell.

We currently have just about enough orders to meet the minimum. We hope to have enough by the Saturday deadline.

 

If you want to be a pick up point in your area you can do that. The only requirements are that you meet the minimum or can combine your order with another to meet the minimum and that your drop off point can allow a semi-truck easy entrance and exit without turning around.

 

Let us know if you have any other questions or if we can help you facilitate a drop in your area.

Hello. I'm from overseas. 50lbs probably is a little too much to mail overseas? Also, could the seeds be pre-packaged in smaller bags (eg 10lbs or 5lbs)?  Thank you

The pricing we obtain is all based upon bulk purchased of 50 pound bags. Sometimes people order bags together and split up the order to whatever size bags they want.

I ate chia seeds for a while, putting them in my morning smoothie. I tried putting them in whole and I tried putting them in ground up (I used a coffee grinder) and I just hated the texture. My friend and I joked about the chia slime. I've just never found a palatable way to eat it. i still have a pound in my pantry. I've seen your dressing recipes. I'll have to try them. I'm still looking around your website, maybe I'll find more recipes. Do you see a benefit to grinding them first?

Hey Mamagrow, good to hear from you. Chia slime; well, it certainly does turn into slime if too much is put into a recipe. Recently we have made several awesome salad dressings with it. I'll be sending out a new edition of Daniel's Challenge. When you get it, study the ratios, try out the recipes, and learn how to enjoy the subtle non-slimey approach to using the seed. Like most things, there are up and down sides. As we discover the ups and enjoy them, we discard the downs. It may or may not be a seed that you will ever care to use. Best!

I put 1-2 tbsp in my smoothie. I tried putting them in whole and putting them in ground. I just didn't love it. I'm looking forward to your recipes and trying it out again. I felt better when I was using it, but I just hated that grainy texture when they were ground up and I didn't like the slime. I tried it in yogurt (again 1-2 tsp) and a few things. This was probably 3 years ago and I'm seeing more info about chia around the web, so hopefully more people like you are trying it and coming up with better recipes.

 

What really made me quit using it was when I started blending my smoothie the night before so I could just get up and drink it before my workout and not wake my kids with the blender. Chia would make it solid by morning :) I'll have to rethink my morning routine to see if I can get it mixed in quietly before my run. I would love an suggestions about quantity or how to get it back in my diet. I love eating healthful foods, but I also love eating. Period. I love food. I spend a lot of time making most things from scratch, growing my own food, etc., and I make sure I can find a delicious way to eat what my body needs. Because if it's not yummy, I can't do it. :)

When you say they are weed free, I wonder what form of packaging is being used?

Hi Donna, the chia seed is being sent to us in 50 pound nylon bags.

I'm not sure if this is still monitored but when is the next chia seed order and what is the minimum order size? 

Amy, I'm not sure how soon we will offer more chia seed. Prices tripled last year. As soon as we can lock in some decent pricing we will do this again. Jim
