"The Chia Cookbook" by Janie Hoffman

Unlike most cookbooks that just jump into recipes, this book has an introductory section on the health benefits of food.  Focusing specifically on chia seeds, the author describes how chia seeds help digestive health, immunity, and overall well-being.  For recipes that incorporate chia seeds, they are elaborate yet easy to make.  It is not as if the meals involve just sprinkling the seeds on them.  Rather, the chia seeds are incorporated into the preparation and cooking process.  From breakfast to lunch to dinner to snacks, this book has plenty of ideas.  The recipes are easy to follow, and the full-color pictures are very nice.  Go get a big bag of chia seeds because you will start putting them to use.
