We came across Chia seeds at a local supermarket that specializes in organic foods.

Tried them in shakes/smoothies - and unreal how full we feel hours later.

Anybody of you ever tried them?

Love them. If you drop some in your water bottle, after a few minutes they bloom and give up their fatty goodness into the water. I think their nutrition is more readily available this way as seeds are technically designed to not be well digested.  https://runnersconnect.net/chia-seeds-running/

I soak the chia seeds the night before in a cup of water then add them to my smoothie in the AM.

This. Or hit up A&W Drive-Thru on the way into work...

I like soaking them also because they become soft like tapioca pearls.
