morning ritual: energising chia, lime and honey water

morning ritual: energising chia, lime and honey water

lately i’ve been adding this chia and lime water to my morning routine. it’s made such a difference in my energy and overall health and productivity every day that i thought i’d share! i like that it’s simple and not full of expensive ingredients. i prepare it before my morning workout and drink it as soon as i finish (kind of like a post workout electrolyte replacement). a few other things i’ve noticed since incorporating this into my daily routine is that my skin became much clearer and brighter and my stomach felt flatter. :)

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 glass of water

  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds

  • half a lime

  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp raw honey

  • pinch of himalayan sea salt

(other ingredients i’ll sometimes add - cinnamon, lemon instead of lime, cayenne pepper, coconut water kefir, kombucha, maple syrup instead of honey, rose water, collagen…)

METHOD

add chia to a glass of water and stir for a few seconds. let sit in the fridge or at room temperature for at least 1 hour or overnight. when ready to drink add lime, acv, salt and honey, stir and enjoy!

some benefits of each ingredient include…

/ chia seeds are full of fiber and healthy omega 3 fatty acids, protein, calcium, magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc among many other nutrients.

/ limes improve digestion, skin, support kidney function and are full of vitamin c, a, k, e, folate and magnesium.

/ apple cider vinegar regulates blood sugar, assists in weight loss, improves skin health, kills bacteria.

/ raw honey counters pollen allergies, full of antioxidants, natural energy source and boosts immunity. make sure you get local and raw.

/ himalayan sea salt or sole water! read all about the benefits on my blog post here
