iskiate / chia

#1 Postby NYVegan » Mon Mar 15, 2010 9:58 pm

So I am reading Born to Run by Christopher McDougall and it talks about this stuff called iskiate which is made from chia seeds, water, sugar and a little lime.

Has anyone ever tried it? It is supposed to be great for energy/ recovery. Just wondering if it is for real or just hype.

If no one here has tried it I may go out and buy some chia seeds to make it and I can let you all know how it goes. Don't want to spend money on it if it's nothing though.

In the summer time more often when working out in the warm weather I find a "Chia Fresca" to be energizing and refreshing.

I was thinking the Chia Fresca as well.
