Chia seeds are a new ingredient to some of us, but as the old saying goes, "Don't knock it 'til you try it"? Remember the first time you tried sushi? Chia seeds are versatile and healthy and are considered to be a "superfood." They soak up liquid and increase in size to make a creamy pudding. It's easy to change the flavors and add different fruit for variety.
