Do you know the 3 Benefits of Chia Seeds?

Hello there!
It’s Vandan from The DRY fruits  Blog.  How are you doing this Covid-19 year ?  If it was to get healthy and drink more water I have the perfect drink for you.  Today I am sharing a Chia seeds Detox Water.  Chia seeds are a superfood that everyone needs to have in the kitchen. Chia seeds are gluten-free and a good source of calcium.  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 the 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 the energy to get going and it keeps my immune system strong. I also enjoy adding chia seeds to jams, yogurt and smoothies. you will love the taste.

Supplies you might need:

  • Chia Seeds
  • agave nectar
Get healthy and consume more water by drinking this Chia Detox Water with a hint of lime! A great detox drink | OHMY-CREATIVE.COM 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 an anti-inflammatory.  All round this detox water is super good for you.
