Chis seeds are gluten-free and a good source of calcium. They are also supposed to help curb your appetite.  When added to a glass of water they swell up and take on a gel-like consistency. I know I don’t ever drink enough water. It is so good for you and yet why is it so hard to drink?  

Really the only time I drink water is at the gym while I am working out. By then my muscles are screaming for water and it’s too late. I am trying to drink this detox water first thing in the mornings. It helps wake me up and gives me the energy to get going.

I also enjoy adding chia seeds to jams, yogurt and smoothies.

I like to add 1 tablespoon of chia seeds to my water. They make black and white ones.  I used a glass jar with a lid.  Shake the jar really well and let sit for about 10 minutes or until the seeds absorb enough water. Then I add lime juice from one lime and 1/4 teaspoon of agave nectar for sweetness. Shake again and drink.

Since the seeds become almost like a gel, it might take some getting used to. Another thing is that lime juice is an anti-inflammatory.  All-round this detox water is super good for you.

  5. can i soaked the chia seeds for half a day? like i dont drink once at a time…i will drink it throughout the whole day

    1. Yes, I think that once the chia seeds have soaked in the water they should stay the same consistency. However, I have never really let them sit throughout the day so I am not sure. Give it a try and see what happens.

  6. I am trying to find out how often to drink the mixture. I am trying to lose weight and the recipe said to mix 1Tsb. in 1/2 c water soak 30 mins. Then add 1c water to soaked seeds with lemon juice and honey if you want it sweet. Drink in morning on empty stomach.
    But no other direction as to how often or how long to do this. I would appreciate any help you can give me.

    1. Hi Deb, I really don’t have a recommendation on how often to drink this. I am sure you could drink a glass once a day if you like. Chia seeds are high in protein but also in calories…so be careful of that if you are counting calories. Also, honey is sugar – so use sparingly if watching your weight not to overdo that as well.

  7. Hi, I want to try this ! Do you replace your breakfast for this drink or you still have breakfast after it?

    Thank you!

  8. Does, execive intake of lime water cause knee pain? I’m 55 and I’m feeling pain after regular consuming lime water early in morning empty stomach. Please share your suggestion

    1. Hi Ankita,

      I am not sure. I would consult your doctor with medical questions. Sorry, I can’t help you.
