The benefits of chia seeds have been recognized for decades, but they were never widely available.
Today, a variety of chias can be found at grocery stores across the country.
And the varieties are safe, nutritionally-balanced, and easy to prepare, thanks to a wide variety of seeds.
But how to cook with them?
We spoke to Dr. Stephen A. Karp, director of the Center for Nutritional Medicine at The Ohio State University, about chia seed cooking, its nutritional benefits, and how to make them at home.
(We also asked him about some of the popular chia-related products that people throw away.
For example, many of us think of chiac oil as a vegetable oil, but this can actually be made into a salad dressing.)
A few questions: What are chia and chia oil?
How does chia work?
What do the seeds taste like?
What are the benefits of cooking with chia?
Chia seeds are actually two kinds of seeds: the white, red, and yellow variety.
White seeds are good for eating and they’re used to make many products, including seed sprouts, chia, and oil.
Red chia has a lot of other uses, but white chia is the primary source of the seed.
Yellow chia contains more oil, and has a high amount of protein.
The seeds are the primary nutrient source for the chia plant, and the seeds themselves have a lot to do with their nutritional value.
What are some of their benefits?
White chia helps reduce inflammation and blood sugar levels.
Red and yellow chia are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, which help lower cholesterol and blood pressure.
Omega-6 fatty acids are found in olive oil and can help reduce blood pressure, as well as reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
Yellow and red chia also contain omega-3 and omega-6 supplements that are also good for heart health and diabetes prevention.
What do you need to know about chias?
White Chia is one of the most commonly used seeds.
It’s a common ingredient in some foods, such as salads, breads, and pasta dishes.
Red Chia and Yellow Chia are more popular in baked goods and snacks.
Omega 3s are found mainly in red chias, and omega 6s are mostly found in yellow chias.
Omega 6s also have an anti-inflammatory effect, so they are helpful for the skin and mouth.
Omega 7s are good in a variety a lotion, and can be used in anti-inflammatories.
Omega 9s are a little bit of a mystery.
You can find them in foods like cheese, yogurt, and coffee, but we’re still unsure of their role in the body.
What about chiac?
Chiac seeds are a plant that has been around for hundreds of years.
They’re also known as chia or chia tree, and are often used in cooking.
Chiac seed oil is a plant-based oil that contains more omega-4 fatty acids than any other plant-oil oil.
Omega fatty acids help to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and they can be important in weight management and in preventing heart disease and type 2 diabetics.
Omega 12 and 18 are found mostly in red and yellow seeds, but there are also some white and yellow varieties, too.
Can I eat chia all by itself?
No, it’s best to eat them with a salad or a smoothie.
But you can mix chia with other foods to give them a boost.
To make a smoothies, simply add chia to your smoothie and mix in some water.
To eat with a cup of chico rice, chio rice and chias are best.
If you’re cooking a meal and want to make sure you’re eating the right amount of chio, you can add a tablespoon of chi oil to your rice or smoothie in the morning and night.
And if you’re making chia soup, use a few chia slices for every soup you make.
Chia can be stored in the fridge for up to two months.
What is the best way to prepare chia for a meal?
Use one of three different recipes.
One uses chia powder or a combination of chios powder and chiac seeds.
Another uses chiac seed and white chiac, or a mixture of chiam and chi.
The third recipe uses the two varieties, but adds chia chips to each dish.
How to make chia tea with chi seeds One of the easiest ways to make a chia salad is with chiac tea.
You’ll need a jar of chiomat, which is a white chi powder with some white chias and chiam.
Just pop the chi into the jar, pour it into a bowl, and toss.
You need a few cups of chicomat to make the tea.
