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.

My breakfast is just strictly fruits but before I eat anything in the morning I would drink a glass of warm water. Lunch would be anything then if I get hungry in the afternoon I drink water first and grab some fruits. Dinner is salad.

How do you stay satiated in the morning?

Just saw the trailer for the movie The Game Changers .... guess I give that plant-based diet a try. I remember my curiosity when I first learned about the vegetarian diet of the Roman gladiators back at University. 

Anyways...I think I try a four or six week 'test'. Eggs and some cheese and maybe yoghurt. No meat and fish. 

How many of you are vegetarian/vegan? Experiences? Thoughts?

I've been vegetarian/pescatarian for most of my life. It's pretty fricken easy honestly.

As long as your knowledge of dietary needs is broader than a meat industry marketing slogan it's pretty hard to screw up.

My problem is....I really like a good BBQ. But....plant-based burger patties are a no-brainer these days. 

I definitely look forward to it. Definitely curious.
