As I mentioned in my previous post, I am currently stuck in bed with, what feels like, the flu. For me, the worst part of any flu (or cold) is the complete lack of energy and feelings of exhaustion. Trying to fight these feelings, I decided to try my hand at making an all natural (and hopefully tasty) energy drink. The drink contains three clean ingredients including chia seeds which are packed full of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, anti-oxidants, minerals and protein. Chia seeds also help keep you hydrated (very important when you are sick) as they can absorb 9-10 times their weight in water.
2 cups of water
1/2 tbsp of chia seeds
1/2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice
** Chia seeds expand in water taking on a strange but cool jelly-like texture**
** If you are not a fan of tart drinks, add 1/2 tbsp of maple syrup, raw honey or agave nectar. **
** Try adding some fruits like raspberries or vegetables like cucumber to give the drink more flavour**
