CHIA SEED WATER

I often talk about the benefits of chia seeds, and how they can easily be integrated into your every day routine. From chia seed pudding to snackable energy balls,

these little seeds are a sneaky way to give your meals (and drinks) a healthy boost.

And yes, that includes a regular glass of water! This is a recipe I always keep in mind when I’m traveling. But it’s also a good reminder to toss in some chia seeds and lemon to your daily water intake.

 Here’s a few reasons why this combo is so good.

1. It’s great for digestion. Not only are chia seeds loaded with fiber, but lemon is an acidic ingredient that helps break down food.

Which makes this a mighty combo when it comes to a healthy bowel system and easy digestion.

2. It helps to keep you nicely satiated. Chia seeds are a great source of healthy fats, keeping you subtly full between meals.

3. Keeps you happily hydrated. Most importantly, this will help to keep you hydrated with how refreshing it is thanks to the fresh squeeze of lemon juice! 

But keep reading to see how you can flavor chia seed water – in a healthy way.

HOW TO MAKE CHIA SEED WATER I’m using a 32oz (quart) sized mason jar to ensure I'm well equipped with water for the day. 

This is the perfect size that leaves a little bit of space for shaking up the chia seeds. But you can use any cup or jar, and give it a stir with a spoon or straw. Here’s how to make it.

1. Make lemon juice. Juice half of the lemon (about 1 ½ tablespoons of juice) and slice the other half.

3. Keeps you happily hydrated. Most importantly, this will help to keep you hydrated with how refreshing it is thanks to the fresh squeeze of lemon juice!
