Hi fellow runners,
I may not be the first to spot this but thought I would put this on anyway out of interest - especially if any of you have read Born To Run... link to BBC article:
The chia craze
I wouldn't mind trying some out.
Prices are pretty expensive unless you're baking your own bread and mixing it in with the flower. They seem to be very good nutritionally, but have a whiff of the old 'acai berries' or 'magnetic power bracelet' about them.
I bought some chia seeds off Amazon ages ago after reading Born to Run. I fully expected them to turn me into a world class ultra runner overnight *.
If you soak them for 10 mins or so they turn into a kind of gel. So you can add them to a glass of orange juice and maybe a dash of lemon juice and it makes quite nice drink if a little chewy.
* - sorry to disappoint but it didn't happen.
