Chia seeds/flax seeds
shelsangel posted:
Good Morning All, I went to Walmart last night looking for the Chia seeds and we can't find them. Does anyone know where I can find them? Do I have to go to a health store? Also does anyone take flax seed? I've been told that it helps reduce the risk of cancer in breast and pancrius (?sp). It also says it is a good natural laxative.

Hi Angel, yes, I have flax seed in my freezer. I sprinkle those sometimes too, but I usually grind them with my almonds to use as part of my flour input for baked goods.
Chia seeds are kinda sorta expensive. I found them at our healthfood store, but I believe that places like Costco have em too. Target doesn't , Walmart doesn't that much I'm sure of.

Chias are better in one main way. They don't EVER go rancid, unlike other seeds like flax.
I got my chia seeds from Amazon finally. I paid about $14 for my first lb at the healthfood store which I thought was entirely TOO DARNED MUCH.
I got the same thing BOB;S RED MILL seeds in a 4 pack shipped free for about $32. I eat alot of em though, so maybe a lb would do you for a start. But a lb lasts me, at current consumption of about 4 Tblsp a day, 1 month.

If you want to find chia seeds in smaller quantities just to try them, check in places that have a lot of food from Mexico. I get about an ounce of chia seeds for 89 cents at my local Food City. The per pound rate is pretty high with that, but it's nice if you just want to try them. If the store in question has a really big herb and spice section, everything in little plastic baggies, you will probably find them.
