    I didn't know anything about chia seeds until your post prompted me to read up on them. From what I am finding about chia seeds, they seem like they should be OK on P3 (try them cautiously like you would nuts and see how it goes). I was unsure of this opinion at first until I read that chia seeds are helpful to people suffering from celiac disease. They obviously have huge nutritional benefit and I can't find any source that says they are a starch ... so there you go!

    Wiki has an interesting entry on them: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salvia_hispanica
    And also this page has more interesting info: http://www.rawreform.com/content/view/345/127/

    As with anything that is outside the original knowledge base of the protocol, I would say proceed with caution but share your experiences!

    Please let us know if you eat these on P3 and how it works for you. Sounds like it might be a great food to eat!

    I will definitely be exploring them! Thanks for the heads up. Can't possibly know about too many ultra-healthy food sources, eh?
