    In the ingredient list it lists coconut milk, and then in the recipe instructions, it says to “add almond milk”. So should we use almond milk or coconut?

      I noticed that ing: says Coconut but recipe/method says Almond.
      I would use whatever milk suits you personally, I was going to ask what type of Quinoa is used as different types I have seen.
      I am going to make this with a Coconut and Rice Milk, or Almond milk, maybe make own Almond milk and use this, quick healthier no additives plus the pulp left over makes Almond flour once dried out in a low oven then grind again.

    I just started using Badia ‘Chia Seed” with breakfast this morning, along with my daily breakfast of Quaker Oat Meal with A teaspoon of Flax Seed, 1/2 sliced apple, half of handfull of Walnuts, slice of Smart Balance of soft-butter,with a little milk(2%), 2/3 cup of water, which I heat in my microwave for 137 seconds (HIGH). Tastes great. However, is this “Overkill’ or a needless duplication? I was using Quinoa seeds, but the market was out of the product. However, I did experience a slight headache–right side of head-top, with a stabbing pain. I checked ihe internet for possible side-effects. But found nothing that specifically pointed to that problem.I have a apointment in October. But the headache seems minor, and appears to be slight and ending. By the way, your article is quite informative. I am age 77,male, always been in excellent health, and have tried to eat the right foods. Even foods I hated as a child. I love salads, NOW!

    Hi Dr Axe,
    Doesn’t cooking the chia seeds for the porridge have a negative effect on chia’s nutrition?

    PS: I still find it difficult to believe that after soaking the chia, blending is not necessary to
    break open the seeds to get the benefits therein. How can that be?
