These powerful little seeds
cannot only take the place of eggs and thickeners in recipes, they also make a great companion to smoothies. Full of protein and fiber, these little seeds expand when soaked, which can keep you fuller longer, and also help aid in digestion. My personal tip is to always soak your chia seeds before consuming them. Since they absorb so much liquid, they can actual end up dehydrating you when ingested in the dry form. Also, blend your smoothie, pour in a jar, and then add the seeds; you don’t want your chia to get stuck in your blender’s motor.
