Great article with lots of tasty recipe options. I have also recently seen a lot of examples of chia seeds being used in healthy shakes and smoothie drinks as a healthy supplement and they really are delicious, however I would like to know a little more about this seed... Where does it originate from and is it sustainable to continually order in bulk, when I could perhaps be using a local alternative? If anyone can shed any light on that I'd be grateful. Thanks for sharing this article!

Chia seeds are great! There's so many things you can do with them. I pour them into my oatmeal every morning, and they swell up with the water and make this funny squishy bubble, I love it! I've also heard you can soak them plain in water, and when they swell up toss them in soups as thickners!

A friend told me that the seeds can also be dried and ground to prepare a fine flour and intense flavor, called pinole, which is mainly consumed as sweet. The tender shoots are eaten raw or cooked as a vegetable and can be used in salads.

For real? I haven't listened about that but sound pretty interesting, the intense flavor of the things is something that really attracts me, maybe it could be a good idea to search it but can you please tell me a place where I can find it for sure?
