I had them to porridge before I cook it and they swell up slightly and add a nice texture ...yum!
Hi Cynthia I use them before long runs. I mix them the night before with either orange juice or energy drink and they do turn into a gel.
I must admit that this is not a pleasure to drink but it stops me from feeling hungry for 2-3 hours into the run and I have never bonked when using them. Worth a try
Try mix chia seed (soaked in water) with fruit and you can add cooked seaweed (you need to by a dry one in flakes) if you want. Stir soaked chia seed with seaweed.
You can do this without seaweed.
Mango and papaya go really well as wel as berries. You will get a great nutrition packed salad:)
