Nature's Path Qia™ Superfood Breakfast Cereal Gluten Free Original -- 7.9 oz
Awesome addition to oats
I was buying chia and hemp seeds separately to add to my overnight oats, but this is so much easier. Has buckwheat also. This one doesn't have a taste, really. But so nutritious! No added sugars.

I added a little raw honey and a few cacao nibs and it was awesome. So tasty and satisfying.

I love the combination and texture of this product. I put it on hot, multigrain cereal or my cold cereal combination of shredded wheat, walnuts, fruit and Uncle Sam's.

Great alternative to oatmeal
My friend introduced me to Qia and I am hooked. It is a great alternative to oatmeal for me. Same amount of calorie, fiber, and protein but half the carb and twice the crunch (thanks to the buckwheat). Here's my recipe:
- Heat 1/3 cup of almond milk in microwave for 1 min
- Add 1 tbsp of Qia
- Stir to breakup any clumps and wait 3 min
- Adjust liquid / qia ratio to your preference
Tip 1: I find that in cold liquid, chia seeds takes hours to soak through. So if you want it cold. I would heat up a very small amount of liquid, add your qia, and then add to the rest of the cold liquid.
Tip 2: Don't send the qia into the microwave with the milk unless you want your microwave oven to have a taste of the qia ...

Great Alternative Cereal
High in protein and fiber, with omegas and taste exactly as described "nutty seedlike." This is a uniquely textured alternative cereal with healthier nutritive qualities to the gamut of flakes and O's out there. Probably the best thing about this stuff is that a little bit does it and it really fills you up - keeps you from feeling hungry for hours! The chia seeds do that. Indians discovered this trick eons ago and it really works! I soak 3 Tbsp in almond milk with a little coconut palm sugar for up to 1/2 hour - use a miniwhisk to stir several times so you don't get clumps. You could mix this with flakes if you wanted, and it'll hold you longer. Enjoy, and thanks so much to Nature's Path for coming up with this one!
