LifeMax Chia Experiment – Days #1 & #2

So I finally got my LifeMax Mila chia seeds in the mail yesterday and have incorporated them into my daily food routine. Yesterday I had a really yummy salad from Primo Patio and mixed a scoop of chia into the salad dressing. Today I added a scoop to my morning oatmeal (yes, it comes with a scoop…I’m loving this stuff!). I’ve tried other brands of chia seeds and I have to say that the LifeMax Mila chia seeds really are flavorless. True, there is a granular sort of texture to them, but you don’t really feel it anymore once you mix it with something anyway.

To recap, days #1 and #2: integration success.

Oh! And my friend Sean-Michael sent me a really amazing review of his experience with chia seeds so I’ll be posting it soon in the Chia Reviews section! Stay tuned!
