NEW taste Tuesday


Happy Tuesday. I’m in love!…with chia seeds. I’m in love with how easy it is to get these nutritious seeds into my bod.  I remember being on vacation and needing something ‘healthy’ to drink. (You know, sometimes vacation food can feel like….YUK!  As in, ‘I need some good homemade REAL food’)  Well, that day I bought my first chia seed ‘health-drink’ and it was kind of weird – the texture was different.  It cost a pretty penny.  And the taste was, eh…ok.  But my homemade chia drink…I think is delicious.  I am now used to the texture and love that making this drink is so easy.  Basically all you do is soak the chia seeds overnight then add them to cran-grape juice (or juice of your choice) in the a.m. Yum!  It waters down the grape juice, which is good, because it has too much sugar anyway.  Win-win!

Chia seeds have more omega 3’s than salmon, more potassium than bananas, more calcium than milk, and are loaded with antioxidants. They’re a complete protein.  Nice!

Have a great day! Do or drink something NEW!

  1. I’ve actually tried this! I was at my book club and one of my friends served us cranberry with chia seeds. I was surprised at how tasty it was because the texture definitely takes some getting used to. I forgot about it until I saw your picture. Where did you get the chia seeds?


  2. Interesting! How much do you put into your drink? They are also known for making you feel full… do they? I like that they are so full of calcium…and potassium!


    • They possibly make you feel full longer, but I haven’t noticed a huge difference. I put about 2 tablespoons in a glass of water overnight (in the refrigerator), then drain some of the water off in the morning before adding it to my juice. I don’t really measure anything though. Let me know if you try it! Take care.
