The Chia Cookbook

 The Chia Cookbook by Janie Hoffman is exactly what I needed for the two little bags of chia seeds just sitting in my cupboard. I had no idea what to do with them before receiving this book. It is packed full of not only recipes, but why you  should eat them, what they do for you. These little tiny seeds are packed full of nutritional value. I had no idea!
The sections in the book include:
Juices, Smoothies, & Shakes
Healthy Mornings
Snacks and Small Bites
Salads and Soups
Main Dishes
Desserts, Sweet Nibbles, and Cocktails
And in those you'll find everything from normal fare to the more exotic. The book even shows you how to make a chia gel and how to use it as an egg substitute.
I'm going to start with the chia, white chocolate, and macadamia granola bars. Yeah. They look as amazing as they sound.
Here's the back cover and a few pictures from the book:

The white bean and kale with chia looks yummy too! Lots of cookbooks tout healthy recipes, but this one truly has healthy recipes. There is nothing in here that I would pass on.
Can't wait to try them all!
