This is a great drink whether you are in “detox” mode or not. I love chia seeds and try to include them in my diet daily. They are a complete food all in one simple seed; high in protein, calcium, potassium, magnesium, and omega 3 fats, making them a true superfood powerhouse.
As for detoxification they are great! Due to their high fiber content, chia seed gel is an excellent way to support bowel elimination so toxins don’t back up and make you sick.
To make this quick and easy drink:
2 cups water
1 tbsp chia seeds
1/4 lemon (juiced)
Stir together all ingredients in a tall glass or mason jar. Let sit for 5 minutes or until chia seeds swell.
