Chia salads and drinks for weight loss

Chia is a seed with many exceptional nutritional properties; it is rich in Omega-3 (one of the plant species with the highest concentration of alpha-linolenic fatty acid Omega 3, with more Omega-3 than Atlantic salmon), is very energetic and contains vegetable protein of high quality, as it contains all the amino acids the body cannot produce. Besides all this, it is an excellent source of fiber, helps to debug intestines and reduces cholesterol and accumulated toxins in the blood which are a major cause of overweight.

Here we share some recipes that can be prepared with this seed to lose weight.

Chia water

  1. Soak chia in a cup of water for 2 or 3 hours, or until fluffy and release mucilage.
  2. In 2 lt. of water, pour lemon juice and dissolve the brown sugar or honey. Add the soaked chia. Serve cold.
  3. NOTE: You can substitute lemon for pineapple, prickly pear, orange, fresh plums or grapes for losing weight.

I've been hearing a lot of good reviews of chia seeds lately - about how nutritious they are, and how easy they are to add to things like smoothies and salads. My question is, however, with the chia seed water...what do you do with the mixture after the water is all absorbed? It's kind of gelatinous, isn't it?

I found chia the other day in a special market but actually it is not a very common ingredient in this place so it?s hard to find it, well but since this seed has a lot of good properties for the entire body, we should include it at least sometime, and well I have heard a great quantity of good results of people who have followed a diet based on chia, so it?s very recommendable
