"One of the easiest ways to include chia seeds in your diet is to add them to your water, making chia water. This mixture makes a super refreshing drink, perfect for enjoying first thing in the morning, or pre or post-workout when you may need a little more hydration in your body."
–Donna, Whole Food Bellies
You may know chia seeds from the popular Chia Pets, but chia can do more than just mimic Bob Ross's iconic afro.
Just a 1 TBSP of chia seeds contains:
- as much calcium as a glass of milk
- more Omega-3s than a serving of walnuts
- as many antioxidants as blueberries
- 11 grams of fiber
- Loads of other micronutrients
