Does anyone have any good suggestions for using these seeds?

only about a million!!!!
put them in a jar and add water. shake. wait 15 minutes shake again. put into the fridge. they will last 3 weeks. during this time, add them to:
of course you can also use them dry, but be sure to drink lots with them as they absorb lots of water.
take banana slices and dip them in chia seeds - eat
same with apple slices
sprinkle on salads, fruit salads
or you can simply take a spoonful of soaked chia seeds and swallow them down as they with rehydrate you, good to do before working out or a run!

I take a few tablespoons and soak them overnight in nut milk. Then in the morning, I top it with some fresh fruit (sliced bananas are always handy, but ripe pears are divine!) and a drizzle of maple syrup/agave. It's scrumptious!

So it sounds like I can either put a tbsp into my smoothie or make the gel and add that to my smoothie. Is it better to make the gel first?

WHERE can I get these? Are they ALL raw, or do I need to look for raw?? I can't find them in the HFS....I really want to try some....

i get mine from matt monarch (http://www.rawveganbooks.com/product_info.php?ref=199&products_id=1001333&affiliate_banner_id=1).
yes, it's better to soak them first before adding to your smoothie as they absorb lots of water and by soaking them first, you aren't depleting your fluids you are increasing! :D
