It is worth preparing chia with water. The consistency of such a drink will resemble a gel liquid. Just pour a few tablespoons of seeds into a glass in the evening, then pour water over them, stir and put in the refrigerator. In the morning it remains to take out and drink the drink.
To the concoction you can add a few drops of lime, lemon, coconut water or a little agave. Such a drink drunk on an empty stomach will not only give you energy, but will also provide a protective layer for a sensitive stomach.
