Flax/Chia seed blend

DH brought this home after a shopping foray. We're not smoothie people. What the heck do I do with it?

Flax/Chia seed blend

That's what I told him. Wonder if they're viable? Thinking I could use them to reseed some bare patches in the lawn.

I suppose you could sneak them into things like oatmeal, meatloaf, etc...

or you could toss them in the missionary barrel for someone else to use.

And they won't know what to do with them either! Of all things to buy. Decorated earplugs would be more useful.

Been doing sort of a paleo diet trying to clear out yeast overgrowth so I've been experimenting with (edible) snacks to have on hand at work. I'd use that in nut and seed bars.

What I've found with chia seeds is that they swell, and get stuck in one's teeth. Smile!

Thinking they may be harmful to birds, otherwise I'd roll them up in suet and make a bird feeder.

Well 1 tablespoon of flaxseed per day keeps the tummy regular, but remember they are poisonous and dangerous to eat crushed in large amounts raw, slightly less dangerous when cooked.

Chia seeds 15 grams is the maximum per day after that it, unless you are working out like mad and runs alot , they help you gain weight and make you plump.
