Chia Seeds, Chia Gel and Why You Need It!

Chia Gel.jpgSomebody loves making Chia Gel (and using it!) it is so fun and seriously so good for you!

Do you use Chia seeds?

Here are some great reasons to!
Chia seeds are high in fiber, calcium, phosphorous, omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants! Chia seeds score bonus points for being a complete protein. Also, chia seeds don’t require grinding to render the nutrients bioavailable and they are less prone torancidity thanither options on the market.


SO HOW DO YOU MAKE CHIA GEL?
Add 2 tbsps to 1 cup of water and refrigerate for at least 15 minutes, shaking optional 😉 they will last about 2 weeks in your fridge and are great in water and many other ways!

WAYS TO USE CHIA GEL
Use as an egg-substitute in baking.
1 egg = 1 tablespoon chia seeds + 3 tablespoons water = about 1/4 cup gel
Add to smoothies. Yes, you can add the seeds directly into smoothies, without creating a gel. But, the little seeds tend to stick to the sides of the blender. Clean-up is easier when you add the seeds in gel form.
Make your own boutique juice beverages. You’ve seen them at the grocery store, now make them at home. Simply add some gel to your freshly juiced beverage to make it even healthier and more festive.
