    I have been printing off all the recipes from this website and am anxious to try them. I was wondering if I could use zucchini in the above recipe rather than okra? Also, I printed off another recipe for Flatbread which looks great for my purposes, however I have Diverticulosis and was wondering if you know if Chia Seeds break down in the gut, would I be safe using them if I grind them, or should I substitute with Sesame or Sunflower seeds. Thanks for you help.

      Hi Ruth! Yes, you should be able to sub zucchini for okra. We recommend you check with your doctor to find out if the chia seeds will be okay for your Diverticulosis. The Sesame or Sunflower seeds are not a likely substitute, as the chia seeds are used as the “egg replacement.” Hope that helps!
