Favorite 5: Things to do with Chia Seeds

(Featured image is from thebeautymarkgirls.com)

I’d like to take this moment to personally say thank you to all of you who have shown me support and encouragement in what I do. This blog has greatly helped me to stay focused on the good and on the wonderful opportunity to serve while enjoying what I do. I have been so inspired; ideas just keep on coming, and I am so happy to share it with you all.

This post is about superfood CHIA SEEDS!!!! I’ve been consuming chia seeds since 2012 and I honestly wish I had found it sooner. I love it so much because of its versatility and the great amount of nutrients in it. Personally, I love them most for its high fiber content.

If you wish to gain knowledge on the other benefits of adding chia seeds to your diet, mychiaweeds.com will tell you all about it here.

There are so many ways you can enjoy chia seeds but I love it best in the following:

  1. Smoothies – There was a time in  my life where I worked 1 full time job and 2 part time jobs. Despite being so busy, I managed to eat well and never skipped breakfast, thanks to home-made smoothies. Packed with fruits and greens, mixed with 2 teaspoons of chia seeds, it was a perfect way to start the day. My body was fuelled with good food! Below you can find my avocado smoothie bowl topped with my favorites including CHIA seeds! I show you how to make it here.

  2. Topping for Oats (and salads) – I just love starting the day right! I can eat whole oats almost everyday. I love the good it does for my body and it’s such a fool-proof meal!
    Below you can find my breakfast bowl: Whole oats with almond milk, topped with strawberries, cinnamon, a little bit of pure cane sugar, flax seeds, and CHIA seeds!

  3. Chia Fresca – apparently this is a regular drink in Mexico! It’s my number 3 because it’s so easy to make. I show how to make it here; but for short, it only requires filtered water, sweetener (I use honey or pure cane sugar), lime juice, and chia seeds! Let it chill in the fridge for a few hours to overnight (so the seeds can gel up) and you have a refreshing and healthy drink at hand🙂

  4. Home-made Popsicles – pretty straight forward because who doesn’t enjoy popsicles?? It’s a wonderful way to get kids eat fruits and veggies as well. Adding chia seeds will just boost up its nutrients! The photo below is Maryanne’s Kiwi Coconut Chia Popsicle from thelittleepicurean.com

  5. Add to baked (and no baked) goodies – from protein/energy bars, to cookies, cakes and everything in between, adding chia seeds  and knowing you are putting good fibre in your body will have you feeling fabulous as you devour your treats😉 Below you will find a photo of Quinoa Chia Seed Protein Bars that are featured on wendypolisi.com

  1. I know Chia seeds are good but never tried, I found it really expensive. I love smoothies, I do some everyday and did not know you could add some…I will buy some next time to try, I’m really curious to know how it tastes.


    1. Hi, love. You can check your local 99 cents store. They have mini packages that you can try for 99cents and it’s definitely legit because it is from Mexico (where it’s used a lot) If you really want the “organic” ones though, check Ross or Marshalls where they have the spices as they have it on discounted price. It’s very worth it–esp for fiber content🙂


  2. Chia seeds are very good for you! I add them in smoothies and in fresh fruit juices. These are great suggestions too, I’ve never tried adding them in desserts (baked/no-bake).
