In this simple drink, I combined the super-seed that is chia, with fresh orange and lemon juice. Add a couple of tablespoons of honey, and you’ve got an immune and energy boosting drink.
But that’s not all! It is also very, very filling. In fact, I can’t even drink a whole cup of this thing. After half a cup, I feel like I ate three steaks and seven potatoes. Not that I know how it feels to eat three steaks… But you are catching my drift, right?
If you are on your way to lose some extra weight, drink a chia seed drink.
If you want to save some money on snacks, give your kids a chia drink. They get a kick out of drinking a sweet, seedy, jelly-like drink, and it makes them stop snacking for a whole hour and a half. An unheard of event around this house.
If your immune system needs a little boost, drink a chia drink.
If you need a bit of an energy boost, drink a chia drink.
The bottom line is, you should make yourself a chia drink!
But here is where an ordinary chia drink becomes an extraordinary chia drink…. You make it in a mason jar!
You cover the jar with an Ecojarz lid and slide the stainless still straw in. Then, you go find a front porch and a rocking chair. You sip the drink, close your eyes and imagine that you are far away in the country. Where the grass is green, the cows are fat, and people drink from mason jars.
Unless you really are in the country. Then, no imagination is required.
Chia seeds come from a plant in the mint family that is native to Mexico.
Chia seeds are full of omega-3 fats, fiber and proteins. They are loaded with antioxidants, contain massive amounts of nutrients, and have very few calories. They can lower the risk of heart disease, help you lose weight, support healthy bone structure, and as effective as an energy drink if you need a boost of energy.
They pretty much have it all and do it all except the dishes. Which could have been real nice.
The best part is; they are very easy to add to your diet.
Get yourself a bag of chia seeds, and start sticking them everywhere. In cookies, cakes, breads, drinks, jams, rice… You can add them to just about anything.
Here is a simple way to make a chia seed drink…
Add a cup of water to a pint size, wide mouth mason jar…
