Chia Detox Water
Hello there! How are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions? If it was to get healthy and drink more water I have the perfect drink for you. Today I am sharing a Chia Detox Water. Chia seeds are a superfood that everyone needs to have in the pantry. Did you know you could add them to water and drink it?
Chia seeds are gluten free and a good source of calcium and fiber. They are also supposed to help curb your appetite. When added to a glass of water they swell up and take on a gel like consistency. I know I don’t ever drink enough water. It is so good for you and yet why is it so hard to drink? Really the only time I drink water is at they gym while I am working out. By then my muscles are screaming for water and it’s too late. I am trying to drink this detox water first thing in the mornings. It helps wake me up and gives me energy to get going.
I also enjoy added chia seeds to jams, yogurt and smoothies.
I like to add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to my water . They make black and white ones. I used a glass jar with a lid. Shake the jar really well and let sit for about 10 minutes or until the seeds absorb enough water. Then I add lime juice from one lime and 1/4 teaspoon of agave nectar for sweetness. Shake again and drink. Since the seeds become almost like gel, it might take some getting used to. Another thing is that lime juice is a anti-inflammatory. All round this detox water is super good for you.
