Primal diet. Most of these recipes have ingredients that are not allowed, like wheat and beans.
I will be trying one recipe for Strawberry Chia Chef Salad Dressing. Sounds yummy.
About Chia Seeds from Mark's Daily Apple:
I’ve heard chia seeds mentioned in the forums, and I thought it would
be worth it to take a quick gander. Before Chia Pets got popular, chia
seeds were eaten throughout Mesoamerica for thousands of years. The
Aztec and Mayan civilizations were big fans of the seed, even using chia
seeds as tributes to the ruling classes. Chia is actually a bit like
flax in a few ways. For one, chia is high in Omega 3 fatty acids – ALA
in particular. But just like I do with flax, I think the potential
benefits of ALA in the diet are vastly overblown. The “purpose” of ALA
consumption is to convert it into DHA/EPA, but humans simply don’t have the hardware to make the conversion worthwhile.
Most of it just gets wasted. That’s not to say chia isn’t a viable food
option; if it tastes good and falls within the PB, I say go for it.
Just don’t make the mistake of thinking you’re taking care of all your
Omega 3 fatty acid requirements with a few tablespoons of chia seeds
