Have you ever tried chia seeds? It's one of the most in demand superfoods right now. Even though those little black seeds don’t seem too fancy, they are actually packed with tons of goodness from fibre, protein, calcium, magnesium to Omega-3 fatty acids. They are also said to boost energy level and are great while running, exercising or walking. The best part is that they help with hydration since they absorb up to 9-10 times of their weight in water. I’ve had them before in oatmeal and smoothies but never in drinking water. Well, that is about to change from today. I am taking Angela’s advice and add them to my daily water-bottle, since an energy kick would be very welcome around here:) What do you think? Would you try it?
Psst: Simply mix 1.5 tbsp of chia seeds with 2 cups of water (or coconut water), half tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and a bit of honey (or maple syrup) for sweetens. Shake it and ta dah! Here is the full how to.
P.S: Plus, this jazzy take on water.
P.P.S: And those nifty lemon and mint ice cubes.
