I incorporated this in my protein shake for my breakfast or dinner. I love how it thickens my drink and makes me feel full for a longer period. Digestion wise i noticed my "morning routine" slides out better compared to when i was not taking this. 😊 sometimes i add a teaspoon to my water just for a little texture. It makes me feel fullabout 2 months ago
A life without this superfood is intolerable. The options for this baby are endless: add it to your porridge, to your yogurt, to fish, or make a pudding out of it. Just soak this baby in water and it will form a jelly consistency almost like a tapioca. Be careful not to overat this stuff though, because I know it’s so good but you can easily add unnecessary calories. It makes sense though because this superfood is packed with all health benefits and macronutrients. You got your fat, fiber, and protein all in this along with many more nutrients. They’re tiny but they are so amazing.2 months ago
What I love about this is how easily I can sneak it into my daily food. I just mix it into my breakfast oatmeal or use it to replace eggs for baking. I strongly believe in eating better in order to lose weight, and regularly eating this helped me trim some of the post-partum weight. I intentionally waited a few weeks in order to see results before posting this review. Of course, you still need to maintain a healthy diet if you really want to lose weight, but this helped out a lot. The fact that it has so many health benefits doesn't hurt either. For someone who is lactose intolerant like me, having alternate sources of calcium is always a good thing.3 months ago
I love Chia seeds for adding an extra bit of protein and oomph to my daily smoothie (rolled oats and chia seeds is a staple) and this is one of the cheapest on the market. I use chia seeds for cooking also, I add a bit on top of salads and it just adds a different texture also. This one is quite hygienic with the resealable pack and easy to differentiate from all the other super grocer products with the distinctive color.4 months ago
I was trying to find healthier options online since I was trying to lose weight when I saw this product here. I have not consumed it yet, though. I can say that the price is not that bad, too! This is another great find, I guess. Now, shopping for healthier food options has been made easier.4 months ago
Whew! Glad I got this before it sold out! I've been using this on a daily basis for two weeks now, and I never felt so good. For one, this helps me to be full for longer without making me bloated unlike other "organic" products. Possibly because different body compositions react differently? At any rate, I'm really enjoying this and it satisfies my sweet tooth when I soak it in Greek yogurt along with fruits like strawberries or mangoes. Will definitely repurchase once it's back in stock!5 months ago
