Legend has it that Mayan long distance runners kept hydrated by drinking chia seeds soaked in water because the seeds retain several times their weight in water. They are also a good source of calcium and protein although high in fat.

Whole Foods offers samples of their organic fruit juices blended with chia seeds. It's pretty good.
