Hi Athena,

Great name! Awesome song by the Who. Goddess of war too!

As for chia seeds, I would love to know if I am actually getting any nutritional benefit from it at all. I take it because of their power to absorb liquid, but since my body doesn't break them down at all I'm thinking I get no other benefit.

I will definitely try the pudding recipe. Thanks for that.

Thank you for wishing me well, I wish you good health as well. Not sure if I am or not, but I'm a fighter. I refuse to quit. Some company should give me a sneaker deal! LOL. You listening Saucony??

Hi Jason and thank you, and yes, The Who song is excellent! Chia seeds are an excellent source of calcium, iron, magnesium, and protein. They are also very high in fiber, so I don’t know if with your gastroenterological health issues if that’s a concern. Attached is the nutritional information and additional chia pudding recipes. If you can do cocoa, the chocolate chia pudding is excellent!

I admire your positivity and strength. Having been very close to death three times due to liver disease, I’d definitely support your campaign for a sneaker deal! It would certainly be a way to raise funds and awareness for transplantation.

Be strong! Athena
