I remember riding in the cab of my friend's truck in Mexico and asking about chia. She looked at me as if I were nuts. "Why would you be interested in chia?" I explained the inane concept of a chia pet and then I told her about drinking a flavored water with lime and chia and how it haunted me. It was a great beverage and learning later that it was healthy made it intriguing. Make a limeaid, add sugar and a few heaping tablespoons of chia. Stir and wait about 5 minutes and then stir again. I love the stuff. Chia at Rancho Gordo.
