Chia seeds…one of my favourite things. They are fibrous, high in Omega 3, packed with protein…I could go on. Somehow I always manage to incorporate them into conversations which naturally leads to the question
So how do you use them?
There are so many ways! For me the most amazing is in baking as an egg replacement which is how I first stumbled across them.
I often add chia seeds to smoothies and I have recently started adding them to my homemade lemonade which I find to be a refreshing and energising beverage.
