Instant Snack Creator: Just Add Chia Seeds!

Yes, I've jumped on the chia seed bandwagon. How could I not? The little seeds, which are packed with nutrients, have a magical quality of turning liquids almost to gel. And they pack an added punch as a snack!Working in an office, my last minute hangry snack options are few. To keep me away from the vending machine, I've started keeping a bag of chia seeds in my desk. Add to juice or a store bought smoothies and voila! It's instant snack material. Crunching on the gelled seeds tricks my mind into thinking I'm eating a solid snack, and it's far better for my metabolism than diving into the carb-laden vending machine.
