We pack chia into a bunch of our blends and bowls. Here are a few other ways to get them on the daily...
Chia 3 Ways
Sub chia-eggs for regular eggs in baking.
Just 1 Tbsp chia seeds + 2.5 Tbsp water = a chia egg. Use as an egg substitute in dishes like quick breads, waffles & muffins.
2-Minute Chia Pudding
Stir 2 TBSP chia with 1/2 cup plant-based milk. Add in 2 tsp cacao, 1 tsp pure maple syrup & 2 tbsp raspberries - mix well. Let sit for 5 minutes, then stir again, cover, store in fridge for at least 2 hours (up to 3 days). Serve into a bowl and add toppings like berries, coconut yogurt and granola or enjoy straight up.
You can add them to dressings & dips (shake/stir well before pouring), avocado toast (stir into your avo-mixture), blend into oatmeal, toss in the blender with your smoothies...getting 2 tbsp per day is easy and definitely worth doing for the health benefits.
These bowl-blends don't require blending, you just let them thaw (they stay thick!), spoon into a bowl or jar, stir well, and add your toppings.
Spoon-from-the-pack folks: just stir and dig in. Great for on-the-go meals & snacks (hello kids' activities & adult sweat sessions), taking on adventures, or a complete nutrition meal that instantly gets breakfast superhero status.
