Ch-Ch-Chia seeds and Baby butt spray

Did that just catch your attention? Baby butt spray? well.. it might not seem like something that goes along with food but hey it's all good right?

We just bought 5lbs of Chia seeds.

Chia Seeds 5lb (Chemical Free)

My husband makes great gluten-free pancakes and one of the ingredients is chia seeds.

An excerpt from the web site that we bought the seeds from (link above):

"When you hydrate the seeds in water the seeds shell opens up and absorbs up to nine times its volume in water. This then forms a gel, which is called Chia Seed Gel. The gel helps keep your body hydrated. The gel is also 90% soluble fiber, which is beneficial for your digestive track. People use the seeds when they are involved in sports or physical activities for endurance.
The seeds have twice the protein of any other seed or grain, five times the calcium of milk, boron which is trace mineral that helps transfer calcium into your bones, omega 3 and omega 6 which are essential oils for the body. They also have a very long list of valuable nutrients in them naturally. The soluble fiber in the gel forms a wall between carbohydrates and the body, releasing them slowly into the body. This has been found to be very helpful for people who have trouble controlling their sugar levels like Diabetics. Dieters love the seeds because it can be added to any food or drink in a ratio of 75% to the volume of food or drink and will not change the taste. Because the carbohydrates are released slowly you will get the feeling of being full. Many use the seeds as a way to control their appetites. The gel has no taste."

The make chia gel:

Put 1/3 cup dry seeds into two cups of warm water
Whisk, wait fifteen mins then whisk again then store gel in refrigerator

Use three tablespoons three times a day of the gel (seeds hydrated). You can mix them into any drink or food and may even just take the gel. Once a day you can take up to one tablespoon of the dry seeds and add them to fluid or sprinkle them on food and drink fluid at the same time so the seeds hydrate from the fluid.

We make drinks with our vitamix everyday and put the chai gel in it.
