Simply mix chia seeds (1 tbs) with coconut water (2 cups). Use regular water if you don't like coconut water. Let sit in fridge for 10-15 minutes and then consume. Optional - add Slice of 🍋 lemon.
This is a great snack choice between meals.
Chia seeds are full of omega-3 fats, which are good for for promoting a healthy heart ❤️ AND reducing inflammation.
I know some of you will remember the old chia seed commercials in the US - not sure if they still air and sell chia pets? Either way, chia seeds are enjoying a renaissance due to them being an uh-mazing source of plant-based protein.
The word "chia" means strength or energy in the Mayan language. They pack fiber, protein, omega 6 and 3, calcium, etc. These little dudes are mega packed with so much goodness, which is why they have been deemed the [sometimes annoying] title of superfood.
Have you tried chia seeds yet? If not, I highly suggest you buy a bag and start to incorporate these into your daily life. We eat them a lot lately as a breakfast pudding (recipe below) BUT you could also add them to a smoothie, oatmeal, salad or even water (recipe coming soon!).
This recipe is wholeheartedly "kid approved" in my household. The little ones in this family eat this for breakfast a few days a week with gusto.
