So you bought a bag of chia seed because you heard it was good for you. Now you open the cupboard and stare at it, wondering what the heck to do with it all. Trust me, you are not alone. Chia is the darling of the health food world and with good reason. It’s low in carbs, high in fiber and protein and it packs a serious nutritional punch into a single tablespoon of the little seeds. Runners have been downing them like gangbusters ever since the publication of Born To Run. Nutritionists and wellness writers quickly followed suit. That funny little seed that used to be something of a joke, a late night ad on TV for a funny terra cotta animal that sprouted and grew, is now a well-established nutritional powerhouse.
And you’ve probably tried some in your smoothies and maybe made a little chia pudding. But it’s actually quite a versatile ingredient and you can do a lot more with it than you might think. Everything from muffins to brownies to using it as a binder in meatballs, chia can be savory or sweet. Sky’s the limit. Here are 21 low carb or paleo recipes to help you get a little more chia into your healthy diet.
