Anyone ever try Chia Seeds?

I heard about them awhile ago and bought some but kept forgetting to use them. I've been working on losing weight and saw on Good Morning America that they're good for helping to lose weight. I decided to throw some in my smoothie the other day and they were really good. A smoothie usually doesn't keep me filled for any period of time but with the added chia seeds it helped a lot. I didn't need to eat a snack before lunch like I usually do.

Has anyone else tried chia seeds?


Here is the link to the GMA segment on them: http://abcnews.go.com/Travel/eating-chia-seeds/story?id=18296119

What all do you use them in? I like them in my smoothies and I've seen you can add them to oatmeal, too (the original reason I bought them, lol). I would assume in baked goods too?

Since they don't have much taste we throw them in tons of stuff. Whenever we think of it in they go. We often grind them to avoid them getting stuck in our teeth.
