The new “super food” – chia seeds. Stir them into any liquid and they will firm up like a gel. I used them to make raw, vegan pudding.

Stir into yogurt. Use as a topping for chicken. Eat it with peanut butter on toast.

  1. Once I managed to get past the tendency of those pesky little seeds to get stuck in my teeth, I started to love chia! Have you tried any of the beverages with chia? I want to try making something like that at home.

    • I have not tried any beverages with chia, Rachel. I will have to check that out! Maybe mixed in with my morning yogurt and granola…

    • The zucchini squares look great – and I don’t like zucchini (too squishy, usually). The peach butter looked yummy as well. Love the idea of it with peanut butter on toast. I keep hearing about Chia seeds, so I guess I will have to try some. They aren’t by chance the droppings from a Chia Pet, are they? (If so, Grandma Mabie would have called them Chia “tickets”)

      • You should try this recipe, Aunt Stace. It’s not squishy at all, well besides the fact that it’s made with eggs. It’s like a cross between a biscuit and a quiche texture.
