Chia seeds are one of those "good-for-you" everyday superfoods that took me a lonnnnnnnnnng time to embrace. I don't know why... all my food blogger friends were loving chia. I just didn't. Until recently.
And it all started with a trip to the beach, and a cocktail. A lot of other things start that way too, am I right?!? (Sometimes I crack myself up.)
It's good for you.
Chia seeds are:
- high in antioxidants
- good for gut health and heart health
- packed with plant-based protein
You should add them to your diet.
Here are 7 easy ways to eat (or drink) more chia seeds!
1. In Smoothies
If you're hesitant about chia seeds, because maybe you don't like the gummy texture / consistency, start by adding them to your smoothies. The blender pulverizes them into such small pieces that any potential gumminess disappears.
Just like this peach ginger chia smoothie was gone in about 8.2 seconds! Soooooooooo good and refreshing.
